Science of Learning: Disfluency Effect

Among the desirable difficulties that can be introduced into a classroom to enhance memorization, disfluency stands out as being particularly unintuitive. Disfluency is the process of making items to be learned more difficult to process which means that the student, in using more processing, processes the material to a deeper level. This is usually done by introducing interference during the encoding stage of learning, making the process more difficult, and leading to additional processing right from the start aiding in remembering the material.

Such an efficient way of doing things is easy for everyone.

Teachers should try to provide instruction that will support the different learning styles in every lesson or lecture that they give.
