SY017: Incremental Rehearsal: Effective and Efficient Research-Based Memory Interventions

Thursday, February 20, 2014 2:00 PM–3:20 PM


Incremental Rehearsal (IR) is a promising evidence-based repeated practice intervention. However, IR has been criticized as inefficient and additional expansion of the research base is needed. Four studies investigated the effectiveness of IR with different populations, methodologies, and subject areas. Peer tutoring and computer-assisted instruction were used to increase efficiency. Implications of the studies, the best use of IR, and the role of the school psychologist in implementing IR will be discussed.
