Nugteren, Michelle L.; Jarodzka, Halszka; Kester, Liesbeth; Van Merriënboer, Jeroen J. G. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2018
Self-assessment and task selection are important self-regulated learning skills for secondary school students. More specifically, selecting new tasks based on self-assessments is very important for them, because teachers are not always present or able to select tasks for them individually. However, little is known about the processes underlying…

Although choice of task has been effective in reducing noncompliance, it may provide an opportunity to escape from less-preferred tasks. We used a reversal design to evaluate the effects of choice of a low-preference task sequence on noncompliance, task engagement, and duration to complete activities across two individuals with autism spectrum…

Tullis, Jonathan G.; Fiechter, Joshua L.; Benjamin, Aaron S. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2018
Practice tests provide large mnemonic benefits over restudying, but learners judge practice tests as less effective than restudying. Consequently, learners infrequently utilize testing when controlling their study and often choose to be tested only on well-learned items. In 5 experiments, we examined whether learners' choices about testing and…
