Students, like everyone else, have limited memory with which to take in, process, store, and recall information. In this paper, this limitation is examined within the context of a semester project in which students were tasked to complete a network design project based on a case with which they were presented. Two back-to-back semesters in which the project was first presented as a single, overall semester project that was compared against the second semester in which individual project deliverables were due throughout the semester were compared. Results and implications are discussed.
