Does the Flipped Classroom really work?
Below are some slides showing the number of students who are proficient on a given assessment for four courses in which I am able to compare lecture to the flipped classroom.  These comparisons are based on performance on common assessments. I define proficient as students that are at 80% or above on a given assessment.  

Calculus proficiencies are up by 13.6% with the peer instruction flipped classroom compared to lecture with my Fall 2013 results for peer instruction being up by 17.7%.        
                                                                                           

Pre-Calculus proficiencies are up by 11.3% with the peer instruction flipped classroom compared to lecture with my Fall 2013 results for peer instruction being up by 12.4%.        
                                                                             
  
Algebra 2 and Trigonometry proficiencies are up by 12.8% with the peer instruction flipped classroom compared to lecture with my Fall 2013 results for peer instruction being up by 15.1%.   
*Note:  Algebra 2 Traditional Flip data not available.

Here is a summary of the flip learning model data for Calculus 1, Pre-Calculus and Accelerated Algebra 2:
 
I teach "Introduction to Statistics" at Augsburg College's Rochester campus.  Since January 2013, I have taught the class using the Peer Instruction Flipped Learning model and my class average is up by 5.5% compared to lecture.
Survey results are below.
1.    Would you have preferred class to have been taught with the Peer Instruction Flipped Learning Model or Traditional Lecture?   
  • Peer Instruction Flipped Learning Model: 100%
  • Traditional Lecture: 0%
 2.    Do you believe the Peer Instruction Flipped Learning Model is more effective than the Traditional Lecture?
  • Peer Instruction Flipped Learning Model: 100%
  • Traditional Lecture: 0%
3.    Do you feel that the Peer Instruction Flipped Learning Model made class more interactive compared to a Traditional Lecture in this class?
  • Agreed or Strongly Agreed: 100%
4.     Do you believe the Peer Instruction Flipped Learning Model helped you understand the material better compared to the Traditional Lecture?
  • Yes: 100%
