Predicting the Optimal Spacing of Study: A Multiscale Context Model of Memory

NeurIPS 2009 Harold PashlerNicholas CepedaRobert V. LindseyEd VulMichael C. Mozer

When individuals learn facts (e.g., foreign language vocabulary) over multiple study sessions, the temporal spacing of study has a significant impact on memory retention. Behavioral experiments have shown a nonmonotonic relationship between spacing and retention: short or long intervals between study sessions yield lower cued-recall accuracy than intermediate intervals...
