Results: The content analysis revealed the existence of two categories - Causality (Intrinsic / Extrinsic) and Influence (No consequences / Generics / Specifics) - regardless of the approach to real rank. Conclusion: The reflection that students can make about their learning process and the difficulties in developing their tasks is of great relevant to achieve an effective success. This was evident in the analysis that our students have made on the completion of the assessment work, as well as the consequences for their future study.
