A new blended learning environment encompassing a wide variety of formative assessment was developed for a large undergraduate mathematics course to promote deep learning approach. In order to enhance reflection, the final exam was replaced by students’ self-assessment. At the end of the course, a cluster analysis found four student clusters differing in their deep and surface learning approaches. Analysis of open feedback questions suggests that the contextual factor most commonly associated with deep learning approach was innovative assessment. Our findings lead us towards understanding how to foster deep learning approach in different kinds of learners.
