A Challenge to the Anecdotal Stereotype of the Asian Student.
Kember, David; Gow, Lyn
Studies in Higher Education, v16 n2 p117-28 1991
This article questions the stereotyped picture of the Asian university student as relying heavily on rote learning. A survey comparing Hong Kong students (n=2,143) with Australian norms found similar study processes in the two groups, suggesting that tendencies toward reproductive study approaches may be a function of teaching practices rather than an innate tendency.
