Action research is a reflective process of
progressive problem solving led by
individuals working with others in teams
or as part of a "community of practice" to
improve the way they address issues and
solve problems. (Wikipedia)

Action research is a process in which


participants examine their own
educational practice systematically and
carefully,using the techniques of
research.(Watts, 1985-Brown University)
Typically, action research is undertaken in
a school setting.

It is a reflective process that allows for


inquiry and discussion as components of
the research.

Often, action research is a collaborative


activity among colleagues searching for
solutions to everyday, real problems
experienced in schools, or looking for
ways to improve instruction and increase
student achievement.
Action research is one of those terms that
we hear quite often in todays educational
circles.
In short, performing action research is the
same as performing an experiment, thus
it is an empirical process.
