Using Action Research to Develop Improvement Plans to Benefit Students


Action research is a process by which educators develop questions regarding their practice; collect and analyze data; and through collaboration in action research groups, they refine their knowledge. When empowered through action research, educators can inaugurate improvement plans that really work for the benefit of students. The five phases of action research include:

  1. Developing the Question
  2. Plan of Action
  3. Data Collection
  4. Data Analysis
  5. Plan for Future Action

As educators engage in reflection, self-inquiry, data collection and analysis centered around their personal teaching interests, staff morale will improve, student achievement will increase, and educators will benefit.
