Student Opportunities to Learn Surveys

Student Opportunities to Learn surveys ask secondary students about classroom practices related to the integration of literacy and either history or biology and also include 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 history/biology
  • integration of history/biology and literacy activity
  • persistence/motivation in class
  • self-efficacy, interests, and confidence
