Using Tests as Learning Opportunities.
Foos, Paul W.; Fisher, Ronald P.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v80 n2 p179-83 Jun 1988
A study involving 105 undergraduates assessed the value of testing as a means of increasing, rather than simply monitoring, learning. Results indicate that fill-in-the-blank and items requiring student inferences were more effective, respectively, than multiple-choice tests and verbatim items in furthering student learning. (TJH)
