dc.description.abstractfor exams, most students do not take advantage of the benefits of specific study methods. Completing practice tests before an exam leads to better retention and subsequent recall of the studied material in a phenomenon known as test-enhanced learning or the testing effect (Karpicke & Roediger, 2007a). Previous research has shown the testing effect with verbal stimuli, but other academic domains such as mathematics remain unstudied. The goal of the present study is to determine if test-enhancement is applicable within the domain of mathematics. If understood, study and teaching methods can be more accurately refined and made more efficient, thus enabling students to learn more and retain more information in real-life school settings.en_US
