Annotated Research: Recall and Comprehension

Question: How does the ability to recall stories affect comprehension on a test?

Answer: “Found that story comprehension improved significantly when children were asked to retell the stories they had read.”

Comment: I’m assuming a comprehension test on the story followed the recall. RayS.
