Crib Work--An Evaluation of a Problem-Based Learning Experiment: Preliminary Results
Walsh, Vonda K.; Bush, H. Francis
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v6 n4 p385-392 2013
Problem-based learning has been proven to be successful in both medical colleges and physics classes, but not uniformly across all disciplines. A college course in probability and statistics was used as a setting to test the effectiveness of problem-based learning when applied to homework. This paper compares the performances of the students from two classes and attempts to draw inferences as to the overall benefits and effectiveness of changing the process by which the students earned their homework grade.
