Abstract: This study examines a flipped, high school classroom that used instructional videos as a performance intervention over the course of one academic year. Seventy-five high school students in an urban setting used a flipped model of instruction to support their mastery of mathematics benchmarks. Survey data and benchmark assessment results were collected to determine if the flipped classroom intervention prepared students to pass benchmark assessments, what students perceived to be the advantages of a flipped classroom, and whether students preferred having access to online course material. This study suggests that transferring course material online to flip instruction can promote student success, responsibility, control, and satisfaction.
