Repetition

 

in psychology, one of the conditions for memorizing and assimilating material.

Repetition of material to be learned improves retention and facilitates the subsequent recall of the material. The distribution of repetition over time is important. It has been established experimentally that there is an optimal relationship between the duration of periods of exercise and pause, which depends on the character and complexity of the assignment and on the individual features of the subject matter. Actively recalling from memory leads to better memorization than simply repeating the material. At the same time, repetition is by its psychological nature only a repeated solution of a certain problem, and the solution never literally repeats the preceding one.
