- First year data indicates the goals of the project are being met -
Major findings include:
 82% of SLO Critical Thinking Mastery Targets were met.
 A higher post-test score and statistically significant difference in evaluating, analyzing, creating and collaboration constructs as compared to pre-test scores.
 A higher percentile score for students enrolled in QEP courses as compared to students who were not, and a statistically significant difference in all critical thinking constructs found on the California Critical Thinking Skills Test. (Induction, Deduction, Analysis, Inference, Evaluation, Interpretation and Explanation.)
 50% fewer student withdrawals from QEP courses, and a statistically significant difference in withdrawals as compared to non-QEP courses.
 A statistically significant difference in student grades. (More A’s and B’s, and fewer D’s and F’s in QEP courses as compared to non-QEP courses.)
