Tweet: Measuring actual learning versus feeling of learning.

This study compared passive lectures with active learning using a randomized experimental approach and identical course materials

The study reached the following findings;

  • Students in the active classroom learn more.
  • But, they feel like they learn less.

It shows that this negative correlation is caused mostly by the increased cognitive effort required during active learning.
