The presenter studied the way a group of university students managed their learning process. On the basis of the data collected, she generalized students into three 'types'. She was conscious of the fact that although group generalizations may risk glossing over significant individual variability, a typology would be useful in analyzing complexity in the students’learning process, increasing one's capacity of understanding students’differences.

The presentation will include a description of a typology of students according to the constructs that were derived from a detailed investigation into the students’learning management, and a theory of 'dependence variance' regarding students' management of learning.
