The semester ends

The crunch is on. Students now feel the need to produce. It is amazing how those who learn over time receive the most. The crammers are trying to produce but I know that they will not retain a fraction what they are dealing with at the moment of their need. How does anyone know what is important until they "feel the need?" Crammers have no sense of need except to "pass the course." I wonder why the student population remembers enough to be good at their discipline. What did they want to know and what did they temporarily learn something to pass a class?
