This video supports the thesis discussion on the delivery of the Criterion and initial Retention Phase section of the DLCP which occurs during the week. In the primary school context, this phase is conducted by tutors which may include parents, education assistants or student leaders. The expanding inter-study intervals (spaced practice) span days or hours subject to classroom schedules and individual student needs.
Nicola Carr-White, a primary trained teacher, developed a classroom practice process through informal action research using a tool known as a mastery learning folder. The ability to better manage differentiation and consolidation in this context, and positive student progress, led her to undertake a research MEd to discover the underlying theory and to identify potential evidence-informed revisions based on spaced retrieval, interleaving and metacognitive strategies. The original process provided a baseline for comparison with relevant research
