This research addressed the question of whether the 5E Instructional Method improves test scores in the science classroom. Students were given a pretest and a posttest for both a nontreatment and treatment unit. The results of those tests were compared. This research did not show a significant difference in tests scores between nontreatment and treatment units. The 5E Instructional Method was a beneficial teaching method because it increased student attitude and engagement, even though it was not found to increase test scores in this situation.
