Strengths and Weaknesses
Research suggests that implementing flipped instruction in the classroom can be a positive change for both students and teachers. It has been attributed to increased test scores and student engagement in the classroom. (Clintondale High School 2012). Many schools that have implemented flipped instruction in their classrooms have reported notable jumps in their standardized test scores. One school in Tulsa, Oklahoma reported a 12 percentage point increase in test scores after using the flipped classroom method of teaching. Their first time pass rate for the test before using flipped instruction was 83.9 percent and it increased to 96 percent after implementing flipped instruction in the classroom. (Smith 2014).
