The pattern of differential forgetting between conditions suggests that, with much longer retention intervals, there may be a reversal—retention may actually be better following equal interval retrieval practice relative to expanding retrieval practice. We consider designs with such delays in the next section. The Mystery of Expanding Retrieval Practice and Its Vicissitudes: A Partial Solution At this point in the chapter, the reader is rightfully confused. Landauer and Bjork (1978) found that expanding retrieval is superior to massed or equal interval retrieval, and their finding accords well with other ideas in the learning and memory literature, such as shaping and errorless retrieval.

In particular, studying the item intact on one trial and then having to construct it on the next trial produced poorer final recall (42%) than did having only a single construct trial (57%). In Jacoby’s analysis, construct trials involve a kind of problem-solving activity—namely, deciding what semantic associate of the stimulus fits the letter cues provided—an activity that supports participants’ later ability to recall the response term when shown only the stimulus term.
