Abstract

The student self-assessment of assignment study was conducted in a first year course in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The purpose of this paper is to provide an understanding of students' response patterns while seeking cognitive consonance. The general strategy followed by students in an attempt to remove or reduce cognitive dissonance (i.e. reaching consonance) seemed to fall into one of the following three broad categories: Modify cognition to cope with new facts (i.e. change one or more of the beliefs, opinions, or behaviours involved in the dissonance) - 'An instance of acceptance'; Integrate new facts to preserve an 'own self' by reducing the importance of conflicting instance - 'An instance of avoidance or deviation'; Forget, ignore, overlook, or bypass those cognitions that are in a dissonant relationship - 'An instance of ignorance'.
