How to revise...

There is a lot of research on which revision techniques are worthwhile and which revision techniques are not. As a teacher you will discover trends in revision, and as a student you need to find a revision technique that suits you best. 

 

John Dunlosky, from Kent State University who has completed a lot of research on this subject wrote 'Improving Students’ Learning With Effective Learning Techniques' in 2013. The 55 page report investigates the effectiveness of revision techniques. Below is a summary of Dunlosky's findings...

At FlashRevision we are pleased that our Revision Flashcards support all of the effective techniques...

 

1. Practice Testing: Use our exam questions, answers and self-assessment method to test yourself on the information on the front of the Flashcards.

 

2. Distributed Practice: Use our Flashcards in the build-up to your exams. You can select which card, which topic or which information to revise and then re-revise.

 

3. Interleaved Practice: Rather than revising topic-by-topic mix all the Flashcards up, and mix-up your revision.

 

Revision in a Flash will be compiling our own research throughout the year, when you purchase a set of Revision Flashcards if you would like to partake in active research please let us know via FlashRevision@gmail.com
