Example text

The second case in this section is a study of assessment by Miller and Parlett (1974). Miller and Parlett studied the assessment process of thirty students who were being assessed in their ®nal examinations. They found that students fell into three categories that were reliably recognized by independent judges. There were `cue-seekers', who actively sort information about their examinations, the interests of the examiner, and asked for hints. The second group was labelled the `cue-conscious'. They talked about the need to be aware of the information and hints, and the value of making a good impression on the examiner, but were not active in these pursuits.

Feelings and their involvement in the learning process. Emotional intelligence To many, the term `emotional intelligence' might seem to be suf®cient as a means of explaining the relationship between feelings and learning. Much has been written about it in the past few years. The idea of describing, in one term, the ability to manage personal emotions and the emotions of another emerged from a number of sources. One, in particular, was Gardener's notion that the quality of human `intelligent' functioning is determined by much more than is encompassed in `IQ', and that it involves a number of facets ± including elements of inter- and intrapersonal abilities (Gardner, 1983).

The questions create variation by changing the frame of reference. So variation may not only be in a change of a learning object, but through the learner changing the frames of reference adopted, which is an active form of learning. We have suggested that learning occurs in response to variation in the external experience as well as through changes in frame of reference that enable the learner to see something differently in the same situation. There seem to be at least two other ways in a learning situation in which variation can occur and thus lead to more learning.
