Abstract

Our aims were determining the student’s views about the effect of using the study guide on advance preparation in a flipped class setting and testing the effect of flipped class on higher cognition. Using a quasi-experimental design in Tehran University of Medical Sciences, one batch was taught using a flipped classroom and another batch by a lecture in 3 sessions. The student’s views were assessed using a questionnaire, and the effect of flipped class on levels of higher cognition based on Bloom's taxonomy was measured using two tests in two-time intervals. Seventy-two students believed that the study guide helped them to devote their time to study. Data did not support our hypothesis that flipped class could result in higher cognition one month and four months after the intervention T=-0.75, df=197, P=0.45 in knowledge Questions, T=-1.08, df=197, P=0.28 in comprehensive questions, T=-0.30, df=197, P=0.76 in an application, and T=-0.91, df=197, P=0.36 in analytical questions. Study guides could be effective tools to get students to interact with pre-assigned readings in a flipped class context. Our hypothesis that flipped class could result in higher cognition was not supported.
