Repeating questions in prose learning
AbstractNotes that interspersing questions in prose passages increases posttest recall. 220 undergraduates were included in an 11 * 2 * 2 analysis of variance design examining whether repeating questions at different points further improves recall and the influence of questions on attention and retention. 2 questions led to better results than 1 question. Results suggest that the effect of questions combined additively. Questions that came before the relevant material seemed to affect attention only, and questions that came after the relevant material seemed to affect retention or rehearsal only.
