Abstract [sv]

Under det senaste decenniet har testbaserat lärande väl etablerats som ett effektivt sätt att främja hållbar inlärning. Många sorters material och omständigheter har utforskats i relation till denna metod. Endast nyligen har dock individuella skillnader i relation till testbaserat lärande fått uppmärksamhet som ett forskningsområde. Ett område hittills förhållandevis outforskat är relationen mellan individuella skillnader i kognitiv kapacitet och inlärningsprocessen med återhämtning som inlärningsmetod. Denna studie hade för avsikt att utforska denna relation genom att mäta generell flytande intelligens och arbetsminneskapacitet för ett urval av gymnasieelever (n = 189, M = 16.89 år gamla) som använde testbaserat lärande som inlärningsmetod. Resultaten indikerar att arbetsminne och flytande intelligens båda är relaterade till inlärningsprocessen, men att det förstnämnda är så till en signifikant högre grad än det sistnämnda.

Abstract [en]

During the last decade, test-enhanced learning has been thoroughly cemented as an efficient way to promote durable learning. Many materials and conditions have been explored in relation to this method. Only recently, however, have individual differences in relation to test-enhanced learning received attention as an area of study. An area as of yet relatively unexplored is the relationship between differences in cognitive ability and the process of retrieval as a method of learning. The present study set out to explore this relationship by measuring general fluid intelligence and working memory capacity in a sample of upper secondary level students (n = 189, M = 16.89 years of age) who used a test-enhanced learning method. The results indicate that working memory and fluid intelligence are both related to this learning process, however the former to a significantly higher degree than the latter
