The IPPOG and U.S. particle physics masterclasses took place worldwide in March, 2011. For the first time, all masterclasses used real LHC data. Students in the U.S. masterclasses (that included participants in several countries outside the U.S.) analyzed both ATLAS and CMS data. QuarkNet has been evaluating the U.S. effort since 2008. The design of the LHC masterclasses and the results of this study will be discussed.


This presentation is a discussion of LHC masterclasses and their evaluation in the U.S.
