Judging the credibility of websites: an effectiveness trial of the spacing effect in the elementary classroom

Vanessa Foot-Seymour, Melody Wiseheart
2022 Cognitive Research  
The spacing effect has been shown to be effective across a wide range of ages and learning materials, but few studies have been conducted that look at whether spacing can be effective in real-world classrooms  ...  One month after the final lesson, students were asked to apply their knowledge on a final test, where they evaluated two new websites.  ...  These analyses supported our primary analyses, so it is unlikely that teacher differences are responsible for the pattern of results. There are interruptions in a typical school day.  ...
