Abstract [en]

The purpose of this bachelor thesis was to evaluate the impact of uncertainty on test-enhanced learning. A within-groups experiment was designed to compare uncertainty under three study and retrieval conditions carried out in a single session; study-restudy-restudy, study-test-test with feedback and study-test-test without feedback. In this first session, 105 Swedish-Swahili word-pairs were presented to each participant. Participants then made judgments of learning on the word pairs. Subsequently, participants either re-studied the word-pair, were tested on the pair via cued recall and given feedback or tested without feedback. Participants were then tested in cued recall tests on the word pairs two hours and one week after the learning session, respectively. Ten participants were tested during three sessions which were administered on a web-based platform. The result indicate that no test-effect was found, and participants scored highest in the restudy condition at the cued recall tests. Judgment of learning score was a significant predictor of final cued recall scores on the final test.

Abstract [sv]

I den här Kandidat uppsatsen görs ett försök att utvärdera hur känslan av osäkerhet att påverka test-effekten. Ett experiment designades för att utvärdera tre olika conditions, en studie-studie-studie, en studie-test-test med feedback och enstudie-test-test utan feedbacki en experimentell inom grupp design. Deltagarna ombads mellan delarna skatta sin skala av säkerhet på att kunna göra en framgångsrik återkallning efter en vecka. Allt deltagande var web baserat. Tio deltagare deltog i studien och de testades under tre olika tillfällen. Första tillfället med tre olika conditions, sedan med två uppföljande test tillfällen. Den första efter två timmar och ett avslutande test efter en vecka. Deltagarna testades på 105 ordpar Swahili-Svenska. Resultatet visar att ingen test-effekt uppnåddes och deltagarna nådde högst resultat på upprepad studie alternativet. Själv skattningen på deltagarnas skala av säkerhet var signifikant som indikator på korrekt återkallning efter en vecka i de två upprepad test delarna.
