ROTE LEARNING

Form of trying to learn wherein obtaining knowledge takes place by means of memory drills and repetition, in some cases without the benefit of understanding. Rote learning may result in the reproduction of accurate responses, yet without understanding of the reasons behind or the rational ramifications of the answer.

ROTE LEARNING: "Some teaching methods rely solely on rote learning."
