With the ever-growing presence of technology in the classroom, it is important that students are provided with effective online tools. The current study was conducted to evaluate the effects of Quizlet on learning and retention. Quizlet is an online learning platform equipped with interactive tools and games to aid studying. The participants of the study were students enrolled in a psychology research methods course. Participants were encouraged to create a Quizlet study set of relevant course information/topics and use the interactive features of the site to further study the material. All participants completed a course-relevant pre-test before using the online tool, and a post-test following their engagement. It was hypothesized that the interactive, online studying would be not only preferred over other study techniques but would also improve posttest scores for those who actively engaged with their Quizlet set.
