Summary/Abstract: The article analyzes the relationship between teaching methods and their effectiveness in the science learning. It is based on the science component of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). In most educational systems participated in PISA, including Bulgaria, using teacher directed and adaptive instruction is associated with better scores on science. By contrast, inquiry-based instruction is associated with lower achievement in science. Why is that? Does it mean that the PISA findings do not support the conviction that the development of science skills through inquiry is a vital part of learning science in school. These are the questions that are investigated in the article. The author is a PISA 2015 National Project Manager in Bulgaria.
