We experimentally investigated whether requiring completion of only multiple-choice study guide questions differentially affected multiple-choice exam performance compared to requiring a variety of study guide exercises (learning goals, vocabulary, fiil-in-the-blank concepts, multiple-choice questions, short essay questions, matching, and language enhancement) for introductory psychology students (N = 244). There was not a significant difference in multiple-choice exam performance. We conclude that requiring a variety of study guide exercises produces no significant benefit for multiple-choice exam performance over and above those produced by requiring only multipie-choice exercises.
