If the product (the visual effects in the movie, The Force Awakens) was impressive, what more the insights into the processes (hints at how the product came to be).

If the product of supposed learning (the grades after an exam) are impressive, what more are the insights into the processes of learning (cognition, metacognition, environmental support, enabling strategies and instruments, etc.).
