Abstract: In this study, we developed and implemented the Inquiry Learning program, Waza for Learning, for 15-year olds by verifying data for over four years. We specifically implemented the Acquisition of In-formation Skills Research and performed a comparative analysis. The result showed the increase in the numerical value of almost all items. We also developed a worksheet that provides research questions, which can help a student positively conclude his or her study. We found that a research question that could be answered with a Yes/No can help students clarify their claim before investigating, summarizing, and so on. This study will pave the way in which Inquiry Learning will proceed in the future.
