The sameness gives coherence to the task and allows it to be an "organizational unit for performing a specific function.

Students take responsibility for their own learning.
This is due to the fact that feedback is often "ego-involving",  that is the feedback focuses on the individual student rather than the quality of the student's work. Can you use elimination now to solve them?. Online homework and grading tools for instructors and students that reinforce student learning through practice and instant feedback.
