Professor Rob Coe outlines three challenges for Retrieval Practice:
1) Teachers might generate retrieval questions that focus solely on factual recall (these questions are easier to generate) rather than requiring any higher-order thinking.
2) Questions might be too easy and boost confidence without providing real challenge, which is likely to be a key ingredient for generating the kind of learning hoped for.
3) Teachers might allocate too much time to the quizzes, effectively losing the time they need to cover new material.
In this free webinar from Bradford Research School , we will summarise the evidence on Retrieval Practice and offer some solutions to these challenges. Sign up: researchschool.org.uk/bradford/event/retrieval-practice-responding-to-the-challenges
