Rehearsal

Rehearsal

Elaborative rehearsal helped me a lot when studying. Relating it to real life, helped to to understand what it was saying. This website shows how this is more helpful when trying to put information into your long-term memory. It's the process of relating examples to what you're trying to remember. I would rate this strategy a 4.

Psychlopedia - Maintenance Rehearsal

Psychlopedia - Maintenance Rehearsal

Maintenance rehearsal does help me. Although, just reading it does not, it depends on how I go over the information. This website says that Maintenance rehearsal is repeating information in your head before it fades. It does however also state, that it will help you remember it for about 10 extra seconds, which is not that useful. I would rate this technique a 3.

Dual Coding Theory

Dual Coding Theory

Dual Coding is a very helpful strategy to use while studying. When I match a term or note with a picture, it is easier to understand it, leading to an easier time memorizing it. This website believes that this way of learning, proposed by Pavlov, will help you memorize information with "equal weight to verbal and non-verbal" information. I would rate this a 4.

Learn How to Study Using... Spaced Practice

This strategy was very helpful for me. I was able to learn information over time, and not try to memorize it all the night before. The website explains that spreading out your studying produces long-lasting learning. I would rate this a 5.

The Science of “Chunking,” Working Memory, and How Pattern Recognition Fuels Creativity

The Science of “Chunking,” Working Memory, and How Pattern Recognition Fuels Creativity

I used this by studying lessons individually, instead of the whole unit at once. This works much better because I can think of the category, and that helps to jig my memory. This website explains that chunking helps us to organize our memories, to be able to find the information more efficiently. I would rate this a 5.
