    17. 17. How Do You Know it Works? Rigorous evaluations of learning have been conducted in parallel with the curriculum development and classroom design efforts. Besides hundreds of hours of classroom video and audio recordings, different schools have conducted numerous interviews and focus groups, conducted many conceptual learning assessments (using nationally-recognized instruments in a pretest/posttest protocol), and collected portfolios of student work. NC State has data comparing nearly 16,000 traditional and SCALE-UP students taking physics.
    18. 18. How Do You Know it Works?Their findings can be summarized as the following:  Students ability to solve problems is improved.  Their conceptual understanding is increased.  Their attitudes are better.  Failure rates (especially for women and minorities) are drastically reduced.  “At risk" students do better in later courses.
