major assessments like essays at the end of semesters lead to fewer learning hours

Innis [1996] found students spent 1.4 to 3.0 hours learning for everyone hour spent teaching Moffat [1989] hutchings [1991] gardiner [1997] brittingham [1993] found 0.3 to 1.0 hour
Innis [1996] also found this got worse over the years, reducing in number

By worse still
Students on text based subjects dedicate fewer hours [vos 1991] than science and technology subjects where there are more and smaller assessment points From gibbs & simpson [2004-5] conditions under which assessment supports students' learning SHE
