Student Opportunities to Learn Biology Survey
This survey asks secondary students about classroom practices related to the integration of literacy and biology and also includes items related to students’ engagement, motivation, and perceptions of themselves as readers and learners.
Four key constructs related to learning opportunities are assessed by the survey:
- class emphasis on reading in biology
- integration of biology and literacy activity
- persistence/motivation in class
- self-efficacy, interests, and confidence
A version of this survey is available for history students.
