"PSY 401 C: Peer Review for Chelsey"[edit]

(a)Progress #: 4
(b) Great job with making this more relevant to overlearning. Overall, you made this article really accessible for people!
(c)

  • You may want to change the introduction sentence to read “Overlearning is a pedagogical concept according to which newly acquired skills are practiced well beyond the point of initial mastery, leading to automaticity.”
  • Contemporary work
  • I am confused by the sentence: “The amount of overlearning also showed an effect of overlearning:” I think just using overlearning twice is confusing. Think about what effect means to the general population. You may want to make this less technical and more accessible to others.
  • Overlearning geography facts and word definitions
  • “After one week overlearners recalled more geography facts and word definitions than…” should read: “After one week, overlearners recalled more geography….”
  • Expand on the part “this effect gradually disappeared thereafter”
  • Overlearning mathematics:
  • what do you mean by “distributed practice”? Explain this more for this section.

(d)

  • Perhaps provide links to pages that can provide insight on terms such as “short-term retention” and “meta-analysis”
