In this project, EDC staff synthesize research, undertaken since 1984, that examines the impact of inquiry science instruction on student outcomes. A range of studies are included, such as quantitative and qualitative research, formal experimental models, ethnographies, dissertations, and teacher-led studies. This project increases understanding of inquiry’s impact and helps explain the reasons for its effects.
