RECALL: This is the retrival of information from long-term memory. RECOGNITION: This is opposit to recall and is based on the awareness that you have seen or learnerd this information before. Multi choice tests assess recognition rather than recall. REVIEW: A formal assessment of something with the intention of inistituiting change if necessary. It can also be a criutiacvl appraisal of a book, play or just looking at something with the view to making improvement. Or to look back over something. REPEAT: To do or say something more than once until it is understood, learnt or mastered (rather like driving a car).
