Key Idea Recommendation 6: Help students allocate study time efficiently.
To promote efficient and effective study habits, the expert panel recommends that teachers help students more accurately assess what they know and do not know, and to use this information to more efficiently allocate their study time. Teachers can help students break the “illusion of knowing” that often impedes accurate assessment of knowledge in two ways.
Recommendation 6a: Teach students how to use delayed judgment of learning techniques to identify concepts that need further study.
First, teachers can teach students how to create accurate “judgments of learning” during study. Second, students can use their performance on closed book quizzes to identify what material they need to restudy in order to master all critical course content (see recommendation 6b).
