# Reflections on My First Year of Standards-Based Assessment, Part 3

In my final post reflecting on last year’s shift to SBAR (Parts 1 and 2 can be found here and here), I’d like to take a look at some data. It should be noted up front that the sample size we’re dealing with is *very* small (i.e., two) since 2012/13 is my only comparable pre-SBAR year, at least as far as calculus is concerned. During 2011/12, I was using a drastically different curriculum (which ended up becoming the basis for my current Applied Calculus course, perhaps soon to become Mathematical Modeling – more to come on that later). Since I just started in the math department halfway through 2010/11, I don’t think any comparisons with that year would be fair. Prior to 2010, my calculus teaching was done at the undergraduate level for a very different student population. That said, while I don’t want to read *too* much into what follows, I do think it bears examination. Time to dive into this data rabbit hole. Read More…
