Knowledge of results

(Science: psychology) The hypothesis that learning is facilitated when the learner is informed at each step about the progress he is making in his learning.

It hypothesises also that learning is facilitated when the learner is promptly informed whether a particular response is correct, and if incorrect, of the direction of error. The two usages refer to distinguishable situations and probably to different psychological processes.
