Abstract Title: Using Spaced Recall to Encourage Expert Practice
Abstract: Introductory physics students were shown an example problem and asked to recall the solution from memory over a period of weeks, with feedback after each attempt.  The structure of this activity was designed to reward expert practices that benefit the long-term retention of information.  For example, reasoning with a diagram to form the proper equation, rather than just memorizing the equation.  This poster will show data from a class of 15 students, as well as the analysis of four videotaped interviews.
