Learning versus performance refers to the distinction between the act of encoding new information (learning) and the ability to do well on a task (performance). Neither learning nor performance implies the other:

  • Learning without performance can happen if a desirable difficulty (e.g. spacing, interleaving, testing) is present, and one is learning a lot but performing poorly.
  • Performance without learning can happen if one is relying on cues present in the learning environment (doing homework in the presence of a worked out example?) or relying on priming/short-term memory.
