Retrieval practice is a learning strategy based on more than 100 years of cognitive science research. Pooja K. Agarwal is a cognitive scientist and former K-12 teacher who studies this approach. She has found that this powerful evidence-based tool works for diverse students of all grades.Through retrieval practice, students use what they know, gain comfort with the challenge of retrieving information, and form a better understanding of what they know and don’t know (also called “metacognition”).
