List of learning measures
This page is a list of learning measures (i.e. measures/metrics for testing what was learned).
|Free recall||Generative?||One is given a list of words to memorize. Afterwards (without the list) one is asked to recall as many words as possible from the list.|
|Cued recall||Associative memory||One is given a list of words to memorize. Afterwards (without the list), one is given some cues like the first few letters of words in the list, and asked to recall words from the list.|
|Recognition test||One is given a list of words to memorize. Afterwards (without the list), one is presented with two words and asked to say which one was on the list.|
|(Associative?) Matching||Associative memory|
|Multiple-choice test (factual, comprehension)|
|Concept-relatedness rating task||Comprehension/application|
|Inference tasks (based on information that is only implied in a text)|
|Sentence-completion test (similar to fill in the blank?)|
Each learning measure also has a "delay" parameter that tests the length of retention of what was learned.
