Retrieval practice is a learning strategy based on more than 100 years of cognitive science research. 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”). Dr. Pooja K. Agarwal, cognitive scientist and former K-12 teacher, studies this evidence-based approach, and has found that it works for diverse students in all grade levels.
