What is it? This report from SRI Education found that teachers who used a Project-Based Inquiry Science curriculum improved their students’ performance on next generation science assessments. Students who participated in the Project-Based science curriculum outperformed students in the comparison curriculum on outcome measures that were aligned to core ideas and science practices in the Framework. These results show that science curriculum materials that include opportunities for students to engage in science practices, in ways similar to those recommended by the Framework and embodied in the new national standards, can prepare students for next generation science learning.
