Spaced Repetition is a scientific method of learning that involves time intervals between subsequent review of learned items to exploit the psychological effect of spacing effect.

A meta-analysis by Donovan and Radosevich, in 1999 suggested that those who learn information by spaced repetition will outperform 67% of those who learn by mass presentation given the same number of practice episodes.
