Abstract

Both quizzes and reflections have been found to benefit student learning, but have been typically compared to passive or superficial controls. The purpose of this quasi-experiment is to test the relative effectiveness of brief quizzes followed by reflections compared to longer quizzes. Participants (N = 218) were introductory psychology students enrolled in two different courses, one in which students engaged in weekly brief quizzes and reflections and a second in which students engaged in longer quizzes. Results indicated that the two conditions were similar in effectiveness in terms of learning and self-reports of self-regulation.
