*If multiple sections of a course are taught by different instructors in a particular semester, please separate assessment data from sections taught by instructors who employ reformed or interactive curriculum and teaching methods and data from sections taught by instructors who employ traditional curriculum and teaching methods.

***Use the following formula to calculate the average normalize gain for matched pre and posttest pairs:
Average normalized gain g =
