Over the last 10 years students in first year engineering have been in the 60-70% pass-rate bracket. Tried many interventions with little success.
- Blended learning model
- Student centred
- Flipped classroom

- APLIA Online homework system: 3 attempts to do homework.
- Flipped classroom using APLIA as a pre-class assignment
- MindTap and APLIA clickers
Just APLIA on its own didn’t make much difference, but APLIA with the flipped homework made a huge difference – a 12% increase.
A pre-class and a post-class assignment, youtube videos.
They write a clicker exam. Students answer all go into an excel file. The clicker seemed to make a difference in the final marks too.
