10 Research Papers on Retrieval Practice.

For those new or interested in Retrieval Practice in the classroom I have a list of 10 free research papers from journals that you can access [links are embedded in the reference – so just click away].

Before the links you may be interested to say how I have used Retrieval Practice in the classroom:

In no particular order:
