Petersen-Brown, Shawna; Lundberg, Ashlee R.; Ray, Jannine E.; Dela Paz, Iwalani N.; Riss, Carrington L.; Panahon, Carlos J. – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
Spaced practice, or the distribution of practice opportunities across time, is a well-known and effective practice for improving retention. However, spaced practice is not effectively implemented in schools, perhaps as a result of a lack of educationally relevant research in the area. We conducted an educationally relevant investigation of the…
