Recursive recall Recall of the entire structure of some topic, starting with the topic name, and recursing down to the finest details, with each layer being an instance of active recall.
Active recall of both question and answer This method can be seen as recursive recall with a depth of two (in the first layer, you go from the topic to the list of questions, and in the second layer, you go from each question to the response for that question).
Feynman technique A form of recursive recall, but with extra stipulations (e.g. using a blank piece of paper and writing things down on it)
