Based on Piaget’s theory, teachers ought to have a focus on the process of students’ thinking and not just its products. Apart from checking how correct the answers given to the students are, they also need to understand the process that the children followed to get to the answers. This enables the teacher to get and build on the current level of the cognitive learning of the students and appreciate the methods used by the students to arrive at the answers. This educational principle has an impact on teacher training because it helps them understand how to best deal with the children in a classroom environment (Furth & Wachs, 1975). The same principle is important in the classroom principles to ensure that children understand what they are doing and do not engage in examination or test cheating practices. This is an important practice in early childhood education because it gives the children a chance to understand the method of reaching the answer and excelling in class tests and examinations.
