    System (EBASS), which facilitated the recording of variables related to 13 factors pertaining to the studys focus on three categories: student behaviors, teacher behaviors and classroom ecology. Variables examined pertaining  to inclusion classrooms included physical arrangement, instructional grouping utilized and instructional tasks implemented. The results determined that student with and without disabilities displayed high levels of engagement with the course  material; there were low levels of inappropriate behavior; and no significant differences between the behavior of students with and without disabilities.

(2006) : The influence of teacher beliefs pertaining to writing instruction  within the context of inclusion classrooms was investigated by conducting teacher interviews and through the data gathered during 55 classroom observations conducted by the principal researcher.

Furthermore, this study addressed how  new practices are introduced into their schools and the reactions of these teachers. Study findings indicated that most of the teachers were not pressured to utilize research-based data in
