SAILS – Strategies for Assessment of Inquiry Learning in Science

The SAILS project has demonstrated how inquiry approaches can be used for teaching a range of scientific topics, and has helped science teachers become confident and competent in the assessment of their students’ learning through inquiry. More than 2500 science teachers in 12 countries have participated in SAILS teacher education programmes. These teachers have strengthened their inquiry pedagogy and assessment practices by developing their understanding of the role of assessment.
