Beyond Assessment: How Testing Can Improve Learning Outcomes

Implementing active learning
Date of Session: May 17, 2023

This session will be filmed/recorded.

In this session, we will explore how to utilize testing as a tool to promote learning, challenging the traditional perception of testing solely as an evaluation tool. Drawing from research in cognitive psychology, we will investigate how stimulating memory retrieval through testing can enhance the long-term retention of concepts and facts. We will also explore how pretesting can direct attention during later study and promote the encoding of related information. Participants will leave with practical strategies for incorporating test-enhanced learning in the classroom and promoting student success.
