Curran: Students are more engaged and satisfied. And most importantly, they demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the course material than previously.
I can see it in the reports that they write, where they explain their thinking. I also see students more engaged, talking to each other about statistics, asking questions, and showing that they are thinking.
I also now do a mid-term evaluation, which I developed with your group, and the results say that they state they are learning more by engaging with each other, doing problems together, and discussing how they did the problem. They also say they enjoy learning in class because of the interaction.
