The Executive Functioning Series: The Paired Associates Strategy

The Paired Associates Strategy helps students independently and in an organized way approach large bodies of information they need to master. Using the strategy, students identify pairs or groups of items that are important to learn, such as names and events, places and events, or names and accomplishments. They create study cards, create a mnemonic device for each card, and use the study cards to learn the information.

Instruction in this strategy produces relatively quick and significant performance gains for most students. Because of this, it builds low-achieving students’ confidence in their test-taking abilities and enables them to improve their grades in required courses.
