Most research methods are too impractical and painstaking for educators. Teachers and administrators at all levels-elementary, secondary, and university-need a simple, yet powerful book on conducting action research as a viable method for making educational improvements. This user-friendly book covers the principles and history of action research, ethical and legal considerations, how to conduct both formal and informal action research, data collection methods, data analysis and interpretation, planning and initiating action, and evaluating the results of action. Illustrations are included in each chapter. Features: * A procedure model for using action research in the school environment. * A model of action research with examples. * A comprehensive description of how action research varies from the use of qualitative and quantitative research methodology. * Examples of benchmarking techniques that can aid an educator in using action research. * Examples of how to conduct literature reviews. * A detailed explanation of collecting data and analyzing this data in a practical manner. * Practical tips and strategies to analyze data using basic statistical methods.

* Samples of teacher action research projects and references. * How to construct graphs using Microsoft Excel. * Methods of evaluating action research. * Explanation of how to conduct a formal action research proposal. * Strategies in conducting interviews and surveys.
