How can teachers enhance knowledge transfer in the classroom?

In this research study, researchers delve into the effects of varied testing on knowledge transfer among students. The findings shed light on a powerful strategy that teachers can employ to boost learning outcomes.

This study (Foss et al., 2023) explores the influence of varied testing on students’ ability to transfer learned knowledge to new contexts within a college course setting. It focuses on the impact of repeated versus diverse test items, including multiple-choice and short-answer questions.

This research investigates whether “construct repetition” through varied testing can promote positive knowledge transfer.
