The answer is retrieval practice. 26 Roediger et al. 5 Initial cumulative learning performance from Karpicke and Roediger (2008). All four conditions produced equivalent learning. In both the ST and SNT conditions, students were tested on all 40 pairs for all four trials. Note that in the ST condition students studied all 40 items four times, whereas in the SNT condition, the items were dropped from study. However, this reduced amount of study did not matter a bit for retention a week later. Students in the STN and SNTN conditions had only enough testing for each item to be recalled once and, without repeated retrieval, final recall was relatively poor.

6 Final learning results from Karpicke and Roediger (2008). Students in the ST and SNT conditions performed very well, and students in the STN and SNTN conditions did much more poorly. In both the ST and SNT conditions, students were tested on all 40 pairs for all four trials. Students in the STN and SNTN conditions had only enough testing for each item to be recalled once and, without repeated retrieval, recall was relatively poor. The condition with many more study opportunities (STN) did not lead to any appreciably better recall a week later than the condition that had minimal study opportunities (SNTN).
