Using the unique logins to the West Point Web site that hosted the videos, we tracked student streaming of the class videos. Panel A of table 4 shows that almost 80 percent of math and 73 percent of economics students in the flipped classrooms watched at least some of a video. On average, students watched roughly two out of three of the videos. As expected, the control group rarely accessed the video: Only 2 percent of math and 3 percent of economics standard lecture students ever logged in. To log in, they needed to get the link from someone in a flipped classroom.

Notes: This table reports average video watching behaviors of students in flipped and standard classrooms. Panel A data come from log-in and streaming data to the Web site that hosted the video lectures. Panel B data come from a post-study student survey. Standard deviations are reported in parentheses.
