Abstract : This report reviews factors that influence how well knowledge and skills are retained over relatively long periods of nonuse. A cognitively oriented interpretation is applied to prior findings and beliefs about the nature of long-term retention. The report identifies instructional strategies (conditions of learning) which promote long-term retention and do not have an adverse impact on learning.
