National Academy of Sciences: Lectured Students 1.5x More Likely to Fail

In this study, students being lectured are 1.5x more likely to fail than students in classes with more stimulating, active learning methods. Conventional classrooms, however, continue to be driven by the lecture method because one-to-one instruction has been too expensive. Instructors do not have the time or resources to personalize every lesson or drill deep into topics where each student is struggling.
