The 5 bins: Bin One-‘Not-at-all’, Bin Two- ‘Hardly’, Bin Three - ‘So-So’, Bin Four - ‘Well’, Bin Five - ‘Prefect’ From the labels, one can understand that the purpose of each ‘bin’ is tag to the effort of any item to be recalled and to be place accordingly. The basic principle is that greatest recall effort will place that item in the first bin with a timing to re-expose to the viewer that item to be recalled in a very short interval and conversely, an item that is easily recalled, it’s interval to be re-exposed will be very long. The bins ‘in-between’ are for intervals of increasing length.
