Using a Baseline Science Lab with Inq-ITS

Using new technologies can be beneficial for your teaching and for your students’ learning, but implementing new technologies can have its challenges. At Inq-ITS, we understand the importance of a smooth transition. That's why we're excited to guide you with research-based supports and tips for using our interactive science labs.

To start, here's everything you need to know about our baseline labs:

Why Start with Baseline Labs?

We have two baseline labs - qualitative (Flower) and quantitative (Ramp). Each baseline lab offers six engaging investigations. These labs give you formative data about your students’ competencies on the practices of science.

Our baseline labs are not just practice; they're an opportunity for both you and your students to learn and grow. Here's how:

  • Unlock Formative Data with Reports and Alerts: Dive into our reports alerts and to gain valuable data on your students' competencies on a wide range of science practices. This information will empower you to tailor your instruction effectively.

  • Targeted Instruction: Our alerts Identify in real time those students who need who extra support and the precise difficulty they are having. For instance, if you observe that hypothesis generation is a common challenge while data collection is a breeze, you can adjust your teaching approach accordingly, support a small group of students who are struggling on a specific practice, or support an individual student who will otherwise fall behind.

A Simplified Implementation Process

We understand that your time is valuable, and setting up new tools shouldn't be onerous. Here's how we've made the implementation process straightforward:

  • No Rostering Required: Skip the cumbersome task of rostering students. Our system allows you to effortlessly share labs via a simple link.

  • Consistent User Experience: All our virtual science labs have a consistent look and feel. This familiarity helps students navigate with ease.
