The history of evidence-based study methods

The movement towards evidence-based practices began in 1992 with the formal introduction of evidence-based medicine and has since spread to many other fields.

Evidence-based practice is a movement that encourages and sometimes requires professionals to use evidence to inform their decisions. The goal of this practice is to replace outdated practices with more effective ones based on scientific research and shift decision making away from tradition, intuition, and unsystematic experience. By using these evidence-based study strategies students can gain a better understanding of the material they are studying and increase their chances of success in their studies.

Have you heard of the evidence-based study methods?

Exams are a crucial part of success in school, but studying can often be unimaginative and tedious. Fortunately, there is new research emerging on proven study techniques which allow students to use their time more effectively and reap the rewards.

These evidence-based study methods offer students the tools they need to achieve better learning outcomes than ever before. In this guide, you'll learn how to maximize academic performance with minimal effort by using evidence-based study techniques.

In this episode I talk about 2 very effective evidence-based study methods called active recall and spaced repetition.

Active recall and spaced repetition are the 2 most well researched study methods. There is an entire book written on these evidence-based methods called Make it Stick.
