Evaluation: Measuring the effectiveness of the Flip
In order to measure the effectiveness of this method, I must have clear and measurable outcomes in mind before setting out on this journey. Those outcomes may change as the units of study change, but the common thread is that students are held to higher standards with regards to the way that they interact, problem solve, and utilize the mathematics that they are learning. Again, my litmus test for successful teaching and learning has always been how often students are engaged in the upper levels of Bloom's taxonomy and measuring the effectiveness of the flipped classroom model should be no different. Specifically, I will be looking for and logging the effectiveness in a few very specific ways.
Blogging about the process - Here I will keep a candid account of the classroom activities and the evidence of higher order thinking skills witnessed in the classroom. This blog could be shared with students, parents, colleagues, administrators, board members, and other stakeholders.
