Key aspects of effective inquiry

The following are key aspects of effective inquiry:

  • Establish your inquiry based on evidence.
  • Involve your students in your inquiry.
  • Keep in mind the ultimate outcome of improving student achievement.
  • Make sure you understand the issue fully before jumping to possible solutions.
  • Think beyond the most obvious solutions. Seek assistance from colleagues, readings, resources, research, experts.
  • Be aware of the assumptions and beliefs inherent in any plan you formulate and check their validity.
  • Remember, a different outcome for students will most likely demand a change in your practice.
  • Keep the inquiry tight, focused, and manageable.
  • Have a planned timeframe and process for measuring impact.
