Research by Washington University psychologists Henry L. “Roddy” Roediger and Mark McDaniel will be featured in a PBS/NOVA documentary on “Schools of the Future,” which premieres on PBS stations nationwide Wednesday, Sept. 14.
Roediger and McDaniel, both professors of psychological and brain sciences in Arts & Sciences, were interviewed for the program in January. Their segment features research on the importance of repeated testing for improving student learning and recall, including a focus on their in-classroom experiments with students at a middle school in nearby Columbia, Ill.
