An assignment from Higher Education is presented within this paper as a case study of students generating their own examples whilst working in groups. The student perspective was gained through a questionnaire at the end of the assignment with each cohort over a three year period, which was completed by 123 students in total. The students provided insight on creating their own examples, as well as the group work aspect of the assignment. In particular, students indicated what they believe to be the most beneficial assessment approaches. Elements of learning, understanding and motivation are explored, and the student perspective is compared with the literature.
