Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Flipped Classroom Model Using Structural Equation Modeling (303664)
Keywords: Structural equation modeling, flipped classroom
While the main idea behind the flipped classroom model has been around for centuries, the methodology has just begun to resurface over the past fifteen years as a new teaching method. In this model, content acquisition is completed outside of class while class time is used to practice the new skills. Current research presents both advantages and challenges to the model. This work aims to perform a further data analysis to examine any effects that the flipped model has on various student measures when compared to an active-learning class. Two structural equation models were constructed to explore the observed factors, as well as the unobserved/psychological factors that impact the academic behaviors. Insight from this study will be useful for administrators and educators as they consider new teaching styles to improve success with our students.
