Analysis of inquiry-based classroom achievement in conjunction with the implementation of reflective student practice in a science classroom
MetadataShow full item record
Inquiry-based science education, in conjunction with reflective practice, promotes an educational environment of active thinking and improved comprehension of scientific phenomena. This study investigated how high school chemistry students formulated an understanding of Boyle?s Gas Law through two distinct educational approaches. Students in the control group of this study received a standard instructional approach: lecture, lab, and test. On the other hand, students in the experimental group received instruction via computer simulation, group discussion, reflection activities, laboratory assignment, and assessment. Objective analysis of calculations and data interpretation, in coordination with subjective assessment of student short-answer responses, demonstrates that students in the experimental group scored better on the laboratory activity and the two different assessment activities upon conclusion of the respective lessons.
