Abstract Title: Enhancing student ownership of the exam preparation process
Abstract: In a continuation of previous work, I attempt to understand students' exam preparation by the study of their allowed note sheets.  A successful prior study examined freely-generated student notes and surveyed students in a manner which evoked occasional epistemological reflection.  Recent modifications have included the creation of online forums meant to inspire class reflection on the note-making process and a study modification in a single small class where students were provided a base sheet of equations they were free to add to.  As feared, though students had plenty of time and space to focus on more conceptual notes, and they still found the sheets useful, they included far less conceptual material on them, indicating disengagement with the note preparation process not observed before.
