In this paper we analyze the success of a new assessment method. The method was first developed in an introductory strength of materials course at Michigan State University in 2016, and the initial results were presented at the annual ASEE conference in 2018. The purpose of this paper is to quantify the improvement made by students in classes that use the new method while controlling for differences in faculty. Each instructor involved in this study taught the same course in fall semester 2017 and fall semester 2018. The success of the new method is measured by comparing final exam scores on similar exam problems given in fall semester 2017 and fall semester 2018.
