Abstract

A focus on student learning requires measures of that learning, and teaching practices that aim to influence the way students learn require that we examine learning practices. This paper examines one set of data collected using the Study Process Questionnaire (SPQ) and highlights difficulties that can be encountered in the interpretation of that data. Use of the SPQ in engineering related studies of learning is not unknown, or even uncommon, but these studies are rarely explicit about the interpretation of the SPQ data and provide no examples of unusual outcomes. This paper suggests several reasons for the variety of problematic outcomes found in the data set examined, and the implications for further research are discussed.
