Abstract:This research aims to determine if it is possible to reliably distinguish study-behaviour with and without spacing behaviour and based on that, determine to which degree study-behaviour influences knowledge retention. The study-behavior of 29 students in a digital learning environment was analysed and split into three groups based on the degree of spacing behaviour. 17 Of these students gave permission to examine their exam results. These students were then requested to participate in post-exam retention tests. The data that was collected was indicative of long-term knowledge retention improvements in the students that applied spaced learning strategies, proving this requires further studies with a larger sample size.
