Acquisition and Retention as a Function of Three Types of Repetition.
Winne, Philip H.; And Others
Seventy-two university students were exposed to one of four repetition treatments for one of three different amounts of information presented in a chunked format. Implicit chunk repetition, i.e., the presentation of words not present in the original word list but logically belonging to a previously seen chunk, facilitated acquisition and retention of information relative to explicit chunk repetition (p.01 and p.05, respectively), explicit item repetition (p.05 and in both instances), and a no repetition condition (p.01 and p.10, respectively). No repetition was found to be most efficient, while implicit repetition combined effectiveness with efficiency relative to traditional techniques of repetition. An association-restructuring hypothesis was proposed as the functioning cognitive mechanism for enhancement of learning under repetition. (Author)
