Introduction

Welcome to our wonderful Wikia. We have compiled the best methodology in action research delivered to YOU in a clear, concise, and easy to understand manner. In order to help you understand each step, we have included examples, where appropriate.

Step 1 (IDENTIFY A PROBLEM)

Pr

- Gather evidence to demonstrate there is a problem.

- Disseminate interviews with three individuals that would help you to gather more information about your problem.

- Begin to gather peer-researched articles from an educational database such as ERIC.

EX) Problem: Blocking scheduling and its effect on student engagement.

Step 2 (RESEARCH AND GATHER SCHOLARLY ARTICLES)

Re

- Ensure that the articles are peer-reviewed.

- Articles should be published within the last five years preferably.

- Repetition is not necessarily a negative thing; it validates a strong study.

- Use a scholarly database to research authentic and accurate articles.

Step 3 (PLAN INTERVENTION)

Int

- What is the target for intervention? What are you trying to achieve with the intervention? (This does not need to be specific or numeric)

- Describe the intervention that is planned. Develop strategies that will be used to address target.

- Define who will be targeted in intervention.

- Brainstorm possible constraints in the following areas: time frame, content, core values, staff capacity, etc.

EX) Implementing the block scheduling and assessing student engagement using summative assessments and analyzing the quality of student responses in class.

STEP 4 (DEFINE INTENDED EVIDENCE)

Ev

- Define behavior or attitudes that signal change (How will you know the intervention is working?)

EX) Higher assessment scores and in-depth responses would signal that a change is being made.

Step 5 (DEFINE INDICATORS)

Evd

- How will you gather evidence?

- Evidence should be both quantitative and qualitative.

- Qualitative-interviews, reflections, photos, videos.

- Quantitative- surveys, tests scores (anything that can be measured).

Step 6 (EVALUATION OF RESULTS)

TYTHF

-Evaluate whether or not intervention worked based on evidence.

Step 7 - (NEXT STEPS)

Res

- What are your next steps?

Ex) Based on the success on the success of the action research, block scheduling will be fully implemented next school year.
