Abstract

Students often do not utilize the most effective techniques when studying. This project combined evidence-based pedagogical techniques and smartphones to help promote student learning. Throughout the week, students received test like questions on their smartphone, which provided interleaved, distributed, and practice testing. Overall, students who received the review questions performed better on exams than students who did not receive the prompts. This project provided evidence of how smartphones can be used to help facilitate learning outside of the class and prompt students to utilize more effective study methods.
