Tweet: Recognition based test Vs Recall based test.

The findings suggest that while both types of learning aid proved to be effective, there is no evidence that the recall-based learning aid was more effective than the recognition-based learning aid.

 In this study A Comparison of the Effectiveness of Two Computer-Based Learning Aids”, Piers D. L. Howe, Jason M. Lodge, and Meredith McKague concluded two important findings.

 
  • Both recall-based and recognition-based learning aids are effective,
  • there is no evidence to suggest that the recall-based learning aid was more effective than the recognition-based learning aid.
This finding paints a different picture against numerous lab-based studies that have shown that recall-based quizzes promote more learning and result in higher performance in a later exam/test than recognition-based quizzes.
 
The study looked at Recognition based test via PeerWise and Recall based test via Cram.
