Influence of Paraphrased Repetitions on the Spacing Effect.
Glover, John A.; Corkill, Alice J.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v79 n2 p198-99 Jun 1987
The "spacing" effect was examined in students' memory for paragraphs and brief lectures. In Experiment 1, students who read massed verbatim repetitions of paragraphs recalled less content than did students who read verbatim repetitions spaced across time. Experiment 2 replicated these results using a brief lecture as the to-be-learned material. (Author/LMO)
