Lead author and assistant professor at the University of Arizona, Dr. Robert Wilson said, “These ideas were out there in the education field – that there is this ‘zone of proximal difficulty,’ in which you ought to be maximizing your learning. We’ve put that on a mathematical footing.” Dr. Wilson and other colleagues came up with the “85% Rule” after conducting a series of machine-learning experiments.  He said, “If you have an error rate of 15 per cent or accuracy of 85 per cent, you are always maximizing your rate of learning in these two-choice tasks.” He added, “If you are taking classes that are too easy and acing them all the time, then you probably aren’t getting as much out of a class as someone who’s struggling but managing to keep up. The hope is we can expand this work and start to talk about more complicated forms of learning.
