Interactive-engagement vs. traditional methods: A six-thousand-student survey of mechanics test data for introductory physics courses
Richard Hake 1998 American Journal of Physics v66 p64-74

Hake (1998) compared pre- and post-course test results for 6000 students from high-school and university physics courses, and found significantly more improvement in students in courses that used interactive-engagement methods (including classes over 100 students) than in those that did not.
