Spaced retrieval practice, forgetting and relearning knowledge, pupil motivation, pre-testing, post-testing – the potential of the metacognitive techniques of test-enhanced learning to help your students remember more is clear. Indeed, test-enhanced learning can give teachers a blueprint for motivating your students to choose the most effective ways of learning, studying and revising. But what exactly is test-enhanced learning, why does it work, and how can you take advantage of it in your secondary school classroom? In this workshop, the author of Test-Enhanced Learning: A practical guide to improving academic outcomes for all students will offer practical insights into these techniques, explain how you can use them, which techniques might suit your teaching and your classroom best and common barriers to be aware of.
