Excerpt from German Universities: A Review of Prof. Paulsen's Work on the German University System
That the University teacher should keep himself acquainted with the progress of his students, not only in the case of those who are most diligent and talented, but also in that of the rank and file, can scarcely be considered as an unreasonable demand. If this can be effected automatically - the method of teaching being such as to secure this knowledge on the part of the teacher - so much the better. If the method of teach ing which secures this is precisely that which is most stimulating to the student, as giving him an active share in the process of learning, a further advantage is gained. If such a system is compared, in its effect on the ordinary student, with that in which he is little more than a passive rec1p1ent, roused only by the approach of the examination, its advantages are obvious.
