I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature.

By the way, you might also be interested in MY BEST POSTS ON NEW RESEARCH STUDIES IN 2021 – PART TWO.

You can see all my “Best” lists related to education research here.

Here are some new useful studies (and related resources):

I’m adding this tweet to The Best Resources For Learning About Ability Grouping & Tracking — Help Me Find More:

A new meta-analysis “found quizzing enhanced exam scores by nearly half a standard deviation (g = +0.50), highlighting its power to improve outcomes. Different quizzing formats had different effects. Fill-in-the-blanks (g=+0.77), short answers (g=+0.64), and multiple choice (g=+0.57) produced relatively larger effect sizes, while free-recall produced the smallest (g=+0.24).”

I’m adding this info to The Best Resources For Learning About Retrieval Practice.

The Word Gap – A Reader is from Paul Thomas.  I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Word Gap”

REIGNITING LEARNING:STRATEGIES FOR ACCELERATING LEARNING POST-CRISIS – A REVIEW OF EVIDENCE is from USAID, and is decent. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Accelerated Learning.
