Part A: Learning Technique 1

Practice testing involves actively recalling information or solving problems based on prompts. Instead of passively reviewing
material, practice testing requires actively engaging with the content by answering questions or solving problems. For instance,
when studying for my Applied Algorithmic Thinking course, I can create practice questions related to for loops, while loops,
and functions. These questions might involve coding exercises or conceptual queries that require me to recall and apply my
understanding of these programming concepts.
Let's say I've just covered the topic of for loops in my course. To utilize the practice testing technique, I'd create practice
questions like:
• Write a simple Python code using a for loop to print numbers from 1 to 10.
• Explain the purpose of a for loop in programming and provide an example where it might be useful.
One bias that could impact practice testing is confirmation bias, where I might only focus on answering questions I'm confident
about or that align with my existing beliefs. In the context of practice testing, this bias might lead me to avoid creating or
attempting questions that challenge my understanding. For example, if I'm more comfortable with for loops but less so with
while loops, I might tend to create practice questions related to for loops only, neglecting to test and reinforce my knowledge of
while loops.
Confirmation bias might limit the effectiveness of practice testing by hindering a comprehensive review of all concepts. By
only focusing on what I already know, I miss the opportunity to identify and address areas where my understanding might be
weaker. However, being aware of this bias can help me actively create a balanced set of practice questions that cover various
concepts equally, ensuring a more thorough and effective learning process.

Self-explanation involves explaining the reasons behind facts or problem-solving methods to oneself. In my Strategic Learning
and Growth course, particularly while studying executive function, I can apply self-explanation by breaking down the
components of executive function and explaining them to myself. For instance, I might ask questions like:
• What exactly is executive function and why is it important in personal development?
• How does executive function affect decision-making and problem-solving skills?
• Can I explain the role of executive function in regulating emotions and behaviors?
When delving into the topic of executive function, I can actively engage in self-explanation by articulating the different
elements of executive function in my own words. For instance, I might jot down or verbalize explanations about how executive
function encompasses skills like planning, organization, time management, and cognitive flexibility. I'll connect these aspects
to real-life scenarios to better comprehend their significance in personal growth and learning strategies.
Confirmation bias might impact self-explanation by leading me to seek information that confirms preconceived notions about
executive function. For instance, if I have a belief that executive function primarily involves cognitive flexibility, I might
inadvertently search for or interpret information that supports this existing belief while ignoring or downplaying other critical
aspects like organization or emotional regulation.
Confirmation bias can hinder the effectiveness of self-explanation by reinforcing existing beliefs and limiting the exploration of
diverse perspectives within executive function. If I solely focus on confirming my initial understanding without considering
alternative viewpoints, it might restrict the depth of my comprehension. However, being mindful of this bias enables me to
consciously challenge my preconceptions, encouraging a more comprehensive and nuanced understanding of executive
function in the context of learning and personal growth.

Be ready is a mobile app designed to help college students learn their course material effectively. The app
offers a range of features to support various learning styles and preferences. When you open the app, it
prompts you to select your course and topic of study.
Let's say you're studying for your "Applied Algorithmic Thinking" course, specifically focusing on loops
and functions. Be ready offers flashcards and practice questions related to these topics.
The app presents you with questions about loops, functions, and related concepts. You can attempt to
answer these questions based on what you've learned. Once answered, the app provides instant feedback,
explaining the correct answer and why it's right.
Be ready avoids confirmation bias by randomly generating questions that cover various aspects of loops and
functions. This prevents users from getting stuck in a loop of only studying what they already know or
believe. By exposing students to a wide array of questions, the app encourages exploring diverse aspects of
the topic.
By integrating practice testing into its features and consciously addressing biases, Be ready aims to enhance
learning experiences for college students, promoting a deeper understanding of course materials.
