Try It

Re-test your students on material they covered earlier (e.g., a short pop quiz on material covered several weeks ago, re-administering June’s final exam to students returning in the fall).

Discuss It

In person or online, dive into these essential questions:

  • If students memorize material, perform well on an exam, but can’t recall much of it a few weeks later, did they really learn it?
  • What would convince you someone has really learned something?
  • How can we ensure that students are truly learning what they study?
