Design Implications of the testing effect: Online learning: It’s different

Design Implications of the testing effect: Online learning: It’s different | Hospitable pedagogy | Scoop.it
By interspersing online lectures with short tests, student mind-wandering decreased by half, note-taking tripled, and overall retention of the material improved, said Daniel Schacter, the William R. Kenan Jr.

 

“What we hope this research does is show that we can use very strong, experimentally sound techniques to describe what works in online education and what doesn’t,” said Szpunar. “The question, basically, is how do we optimize students’ time when they’re at home, trying to learn from online lectures? How do we help them most efficiently extract the information they need?


“At the very least, what this says is that it’s not enough to break up lectures into smaller segments, or to fill that break with some activity,” he said. “What we really need to do is instill in students the expectation that they will need to express what they’ve learned at some later point. I think it’s going to be a very sobering thought for a lot of people to think that students aren’t paying attention almost half the time, but this is one way we can help them get more out of these online lectures.”

The techniques described in this article deal directly with how to miinimize distractions when learning online. Clearly the testing effect can minimize mind wandering.  


However, this insight delt with one of my major concerns, "Another surprising effect of the testing, Szpunar said, was to reduce testing anxiety among students, and to ease their fears that the lecture material would be very challenging."


If short, low stakes, multiple trial testing can lower test anxiety, everyone wins.   do I need to emphasize that short aumtomatic graded tests are something the LMS does very well?  When we get the rare combination of a design that improves student retention, with easy and time savings for the instructor it's time to PAY ATTENTION!

Well put- and the comments by Dennis T OConnor are also well received.  A strategy for getting students focused on the content and checking for understanding while ALSO minimizing test anxiety, is a great strategy!

For hospitable pedagogy: how do we anticipate that students react differently to the same content delivered in different ways: what adaptive measures are already in our minds?

What this has to do with hospitable pedagogy: understanding how users adapt to strongly designed experiences that they experience fleetingly and can't change: cultural pedagogy in action

Sharing and reflecting is at the very heart of learning, and should be at the very heart of assessing learning as well, given that sharing is one of the powerful ways we see into other people's experience and perspectives.
