As shared in Chapter 9  of Action Research: A Guide for the Teacher Researcher, “To evaluate a research study competently, you must have knowledge of each component of the research process(p. 215).  Considering all that you have learned and practiced up to this point, you will apply criteria for evaluating action research to the sample action research report provided above.  In a Word document, discuss and justify the following:

Part One:

  1. Area of focus
    • Identify the area of focus. Does it involve teaching and learning?
  2. Research questions
    • Identify the research question(s). Does the researcher state questions that were answerable given the researcher’s expertise, time, and resources?
  3. Locus of control
    • Identify the locus of control. Was the area of focus within the researcher’s locus of control?
  4. Data collection
