Product Description
IBOP seeks to determine how much inquiry-based instruction is taking place in elementary classrooms and in what context. Observers collect information about the teacher-student interactions during instruction, the literacy practices, materials and tools being used, and the classroom environment. The data from the IBOP was analyzed in conjunction with student achievement data to determine whether a relationship existed between the two.
