Dr. Nate Kornell (Williams College)
Lecture Title: Why do tests enhance learning?
Description: Taking a test is an efficient way to learn. My talk will focus on the mechanisms underlying the benefits of testing. I will talk about the process of retrieving a memory, the pros and cons of making errors while learning, and the possibility that retrieval is beneficial because it recruits related information and integrates it into a memory.
