Testing helps retention and aids self-monitoring
LAKE HAVASU CITY, Arizona (March 2004)–Frequent testing not only helps students retain more content, it reduces test anxiety and helps students monitor their own progress.
With this in mind, Linkonlearning recently realigned its testing technology to incorporate a redo methodology as well as integrated 11 new types of questions into its existing K-8 content. The end result is that testing is faster, effective and engaging.
As a result of extensive scientific research and development, Linkonlearning developed its unique redo technology that makes learning fun and testing non-threatening. As students progress through the redo methodology, their comprehension increases as they work toward assimilating course content.
“Parents love the redo technology,” the president of Linkonlearning, Janice Frolich said. “Since this technology gives parents the answers to the questions, they become their child’s learning ally as they discuss content. This kind of parental involvement is beneficial to learning.”
The Linkonlearning K-8 learning management system allows students unlimited opportunities to master unit content through interaction with instruction pages and lessons. Since testing as an integral part of teaching, testing is built into every single Linkonlearning lesson. The rate of retention dramatically increases as students constantly digest material they just heard and examined.
