In Action Research Methods, the author and contributors acknowledge that the methodology component is where most of the struggle and confusion lies with students in research methods courses. The aim is to assist master's level education students, particularly K-12 teachers, with practical and theoretically grounded approaches to the action research process with a focus on quantitative and qualitative data collection and interpretation. Authors in this text include K-16 educators from a wide array of disciplines. End-of-chapter exercises support reflection and application of chapter concepts.
