Inquiry Role Approach. Field Test Report (1972-73).
Seymour, Lowell A.; And Others
Three domains of problems are the subject of this report: problems related to the nature of the Inquiry Role Approach (IRA) project implementation in field test classrooms, problems related to student performance associated with different kinds of extent of project implementation, and problems related to project student performance within the project and as different from comparison groups of nonproject students. Data were gathered by instruments sampling student perception of the existence of certain classroom practices, activity log forms, and monitoring on-site McRel staff. Data on project student performance were gathered by pre-, interim, and posttesting and activity feedback from teachers. Domains measured were: (1) cognitive inquiry process skill, (2) attitude, (3) social skill and small group inquiry activity, and (4) subject matter comprehension. IRA project students showed significant growth in all domains. Comparison nonproject students decreased over a year's time in measured cognitive inquiry skill and attitude while gaining slightly over IRA students in subject matter comprehension. (EB)
