When one is trying to determine whether an alternative learning/teaching paradigm is better than the standard paradigm, an appropriate control is not to simply switch teachers in the control lecture class while switching teachers and trying out the new paradigm in the other lecture class, but to have two classes: one taught the old way, one taught the new way, then switch each to the other paradigm!

Especially when your school has classes being taught with both paradigms.  Because then there simply isn't any excuse.
