How is My Research Relevant? A Work in Progress
Recall, action research focuses on enabling teachers, researchers and leaders to be
continuous learners (Mills, 2014). By this, action research is considered a “work in
progress” (Brydon-Miller, Greenwood, & Maguire, 2003, p. 10) and is considered a
“common formative assessment” (Buczynski & Hansen, 2014, p. 352). The process of
deliberate and repeated fine-tuning to the design is critical to successful
implementation of action research. Therefore, part of the purpose of this assignment
is to ensure relevancy of your research and to deepen the research endeavor. Your
final project in this course involves preparing a comprehensive presentation of your
findings. This assignment is the first step in putting your final project together.
Through the collaborative conversations that occur during this week’s discussions,
you will gain helpful information from classmates that may prompt a need for
refining your research design as it evolves.
Remember, it is important that the data collection is aligned with the research
question(s), which was required in the matrix from EDU671. Therefore, another
purpose for this assignment is for you to use this assignment as an opportunity to
revise and adjust the data collection portion of your study. Effective action research
practice includes ongoing and deliberate thought in order to positively inform your
study. Revisions are required as part of this action research process. Consequently,
incorporating this information is essential to a comprehensive data collection
process and presentation of findings that is due in Week Six. For this assignment, you
summarize the necessary modifications you made to your action research between
the proposal process from EDU671 to this second week as you begin implementation
of your study. Please address each of the components listed below in the content
expectations and write your paper to meet the written communication expectations
below. If modifications were not needed to a particular component, share what was
