good post, I read your last one about this subject and thought it was pretty cool. One thing that I find interesting is that there are actual results of students performing better, and this method is still met with such strong apprehension. If the results are better, then there is something about this method that works, and we should seek to utilize it.

@Perry What's even more interesting than the fact that there are results of students performing better - is the fact that people completely disregard those results.

The author I wrote about above talks a lot about this in his book. I highly recommend his TED talk: http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_ariely_asks_are_we_in_control_of_our_own_decisions.html
