A couple of points about the retrieval curve. Your curve shows 100% recall immediately after the learning event finishes.

1) Isn't that wrong? The learner will only be able to recall a portion of what was covered even immediately afterwards.

2) Tony Buzan frequently uses a curve which shows increasing recall for a few minutes after the learning event finishes before the usual sharp decline. I have contacted Buzan world to ask for a reference to the research behind this but with no luck. Do you know of anything?
