The time it takes for adults to learn a new concept varies greatly from one concept to the next, however, the time it takes for an adult to forget what was learned is something we can anticipate.

 

The “forgetting curve” is a theory that was developed by Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885. This simple but landmark research project was the first to demonstrate that there is an exponential loss of memory, unless the information is reinforced:

 

• After 20 minutes, the learner remembers 58% of what was taught

• After 1 hour, the learner remembers 44% of what was taught

• After 9 hours, the learner remembers 36% of what was taught

• After 1 day, the learner remembers 33% of what was taught

• After 2 days, the learner remembers 28% of what was taught

• After 6 days, the learner remembers 25% of what was taught

• After 31 days, the learner remembers 21% of what was taught
