    14. 14.  Rigorous evaluations of learning have beenconducted in parallel with the curriculum developmentand classroom design efforts. Besides hundreds of hours of classroom video andaudio recordings, different schools have conductednumerous interviews and focus groups, conductedmany conceptual learning assessments (usingnationally-recognized instruments in a pretest/posttestprotocol), and collected portfolios of student work. NC State has data comparing nearly 16,000traditional and SCALE-UP students taking physics.How Do You Know it Works?
    15. 15. 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.Beichner, R.
