Action Research Formal Presentation of Findings

This Final Project is designed to report what you have learned and  to apply the information obtained from your action research in its  entirety including the proposal, observations, data collection,  analysis, sharing, and feedback acquired through collaboration with your  peers. As a scholarly practitioner, you have had the opportunity to  continue your exploration of action research principles and implement  your intervention/innovation in the setting of your choice.

To clarify, the planned action research intervention or innovation  will occur in the approved setting while you are enrolled in EDU675. You  will again submit the Informed Consent form during Week One of EDU675,  verifying approval to conduct their AR intervention/innovation. The  available settings for your research are limited depending on your  personal situation:

  • Employed in a classroom setting:
  • Employed in a non-classroom setting:
  • Not employed:

As you have learned, the rationale of this type of research is to  discover evidence that examines perceived problems in a given setting.  Recall, the purpose of action research is to improve practice or to  implement change for the purpose of professional development. Mills  (2014) states “. . . educational change that enhances the lives of  children is a main goal of action research. But action research can also  enhance the lives of professionals” (p.13). Furthermore, action  research is the process of telling the story of your research journey.  This final project is your opportunity to tell the story of your  research experience in the Masters of Arts in Education (MAED) Program.

Writing the Final Project
Construct your final project to meet the content and written communication expectations below.

Content Expectations

  • Introduction (1 point): Create a one-to-two paragraph introduction that provides a succinct overview of the scope and organization of the assignment.

(e.g.,  details about the organization/school, staff, number and type of  learners/employees, programs, ages, locale, and any other pertinent  details regarding the specific content of the project).
  • Literature Review (3 points): In two-to-three pages,  summarize the literature related to the problem using 4-5 scholarly  resources including a brief historical overview and that expands the  introduction and presents the current research published about the  problem.
  • Area of Focus Statement (1 point): In one-to-two sentences, discuss the issues that were addressed, how they emerged, and the goal of your research.
  • Research Questions (1 point): State one-to-three questions addressed by the research in list format.
  • Intervention/Innovation Description (3 points): In one page,  describe the intervention applied for your action research study  including comments on the type of adjustments you may have had to make  to the intervention.
  • Data Collection Strategies (2 points): In one-to-two  pages, describe the data obtained through the observations using charts,  diagrams, or other visual depictions of your data to supplement the  description.
  • Outcome Analysis (2 points): In one-to-two pages,  explain the conclusions of the data analysis addressing the specific  strategies that were successful, which strategies did not work as well  as was anticipated, and how the strategies support the research  questions.
  • Learning Themes (2 points): In one-to-two pages,  reflect on the research themes, including the unintended/unexpected  outcomes, what worked well, what worked less well, and any process you  would conduct differently.
  • Action Plan (3 points): In one-to-two pages, explain  the anticipated steps that are necessary to continue with this change  initiative and the leadership strategies needed to implement them action  plan.
  • Conclusion (2 points): In two-to-three paragraphs,  summarize the major outcome and analysis of the project including the  gaps that were uncovered providing insight into the relationship between  the topic of the literature review and your overall findings.

Written Communication Expectations
