Psychology  101  –  The  Read-­‐Recite-­‐Review  Study  Strategy     •   The  3R  Method  –  Read,  recite,  review       o   Read-­‐  read  the  passage  thoroughly  a  paragraph  or  two  at  a  time     o   Recite-­‐  recall  what  you  just  read  and  summarize  it  verbally     o   Review-­‐  read  through  that  passage  one  more  time     •   A  study  was  done  to  see  which  method  of  study  was  the  most  efficient   an  effective.       o   The  3R  method  was  compared  to:     §   Reading  and  note  taking     §   Rereading     o   The  control  of  the  experiment  was  the  3R  method.     o   Test  1:  Short  answer,  free  recall,  and  multiple-­‐choice  inference   based  tests  were  given  immediately  after  study  and  1-­‐week  later   to  collect  data  on  which  study  method  produced  the  best  score.                       •   Test  2:  Participants  were  given  a  free-­‐recall  test,  multiple-­‐choice  test   containing  eight  four-­‐alternative  forced-­‐choice  questions,  and  four   problem-­‐solving  items.  Again,  they  were  tested  immediately  and  then   again  1  week  later.                                   •   Benefits  of  the  3R:     o   Better  performance  in  most  areas  of  test  taking  (refer  to  data   tables)     o   Promotes  deeper  learning  of  the  material     o   3R  utilizes  retrieval  and  feedback,  providing  benefits  just  beyond   increasing  retention     o   Consider  the  way  the  3R  works  in  comparison  to  rereading  or   note  taking  (apply  these  methods  to  yourself):     2   §   Rereading  vs.  reading,  reciting,  and  reviewing     •   Possibly  just  skim  reading  twice  vs.  reading  for   understanding,  checking  understanding,  and   clarifying  (3R)     •   Rereading  focuses  on  retention       §   Note  taking  vs.  reading,  reciting,  and  reviewing     •   Note  taking  usually  takes  longer   •   Possibly  just  copying  down  words  vs.  actually   reading  and  understanding  what  you  are  writing                     3
