the spacing effect

Here’s the Wikipedia article on it.
The ‘spacing effect’ is simply a clumsy acknowledgement of the dominance of protracted processes. (cf: “Eĉ guto malgranda, konstante frapante, traboras la monton granitan.”)
Here is a website that uses ‘distributed practice’ as a synonym for ‘usage of the spacing effect for learning’.
