Abstract

The aim of this study was to identify the techniques that are effective for educators to use to help improve students’ learning and academic achievement. The techniques that were investigated in this study were; whether asking questions is effective in recall of information presented rather than not asking questions (tested using One-Way Anova), what the specific type of questions are that a teacher should ask in order to receive accurate recall of the presented information (tested using One-Way Anova) and the effectiveness of re-testing (Tested using Paired Samples t-test). The experiment comprised of ninety participants (N=90), each group had thirty people in it; Open-ended questions group (N=30), Closed-ended questions group (N=30), and the Control group (N=30). Results suggest the significance of; asking questions, different question types and of re-testing.
