Abstract:     
This article describes a study of five years of student evaluation data for the Lawyering Process Program at the University of Denver. The purpose of the study was to look at that aspect of student evaluation data that we might prefer not look at: the students who are unhappy for some reason. The hope was that we would, over time, see a reduction in the number of negative responses to relevant evaluation questions. As the program grew and matured over the five year period of the study, indeed we did see that reduction, which we took to mean that our program had improved over that period. Further, we used the data to examine the question of classroom size and its relationship to negative responses to evaluation questions. We discovered that there is a correlation between small classrooms and fewer negative responses to our evaluation.
