The "Testing" Phenomenon: Not Gone but Nearly Forgotten.
Glover, John A.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v81 n3 p392-99 Sep 1989
Four experiments with 263 undergraduates and 57 seventh-graders examined the "testing phenomenon" in relation to students' memory for brief passages and labels for parts of flowers. The phenomenon, which involves the positive effects of previous testing on final test performance, appears to depend on several complete retrieval events. (TJH)
