  author={Diana Starovoytova},
  journal={Journal of Education and Practice},
The-purpose of this- unfunded , miniature-study is to-examine the-potentials of student-created ‘help-sheets’ and attitudes of undergraduate-students, towards the-sheets, used, at university-examinations, at school of Engineering. A-specifically-designed-experiment, a-survey, and a-document-analysis, were used, as main-instruments, for this-study. A-paired t-test was run on a-sample of 24 students, to-determine whether there was a-statistically-significant mean-difference, between the-student… Expand
