If a project-based learning model is done well, it can increase test scores by up to 40 percent, said Robert Capraro, a mathematics professor at Texas A&M University who has studied the impact of project-based learning methods.
Such project-based learning methods are quickly taking root in North Texas and around the country as more districts work to incorporate such instruction styles at local campuses.
Such learning helps students develop a deeper level of critical thinking and cognitive skills, said Mansoureh Tehrani, director of the Carrollton-Farmers Branch program.
