 One thing that I see all the time is a student says “I //know// the answer. I just can’t quite pull it out of my memory.”. That’s because he’s familiar with the material, but doesn’t really recall it. Familiarity is when you read about it, or are asked a question about it, and you think “yeah, I saw this yesterday”. That’s not good enough. You need to recall the information. You need to know it. That takes more than just reading the information. One thing that I see all the time is a student says “I //know// the answer. I just can’t quite pull it out of my memory.”.
