The last section of this book takes a look at emerging themes in affect-related research, with a particular focus on attitudes towards assessment. The book offers a valuable resource for all teachers and researchers working in this area.Some of these students focused on the design of the task while others focused on the solutions to the tasks (task to be solved with different strategies). Regarding the design of the tasks, the students emphasised that a problem-solving task was tricky, puzzling and/or dodgy and therefore demanding to solve. It is almost like a question. But more tricky. Because of that it takes a little time to solve it. (Student, grade 4) You have to solve a problem that is puzzling. (Student, grade 2) Whenanbsp;...
