Week 5 – Assignment


Sample Action Research Report Evaluation

The purpose of this assignment is for you to review a FINISHED action research report showing the entire planning process and allowing you to put together visibly, what a finished action research proposal consists of including the planning stage you are responsible for in this course as well as the results portion of the report for which you will be responsible for in EDU675 (MAED students).  Having this exposure to a finished report should help you make connections with what you’ve been planning as well as what you will be actually implementing through your proposed intervention/innovation once you begin EDU675.

According to Mills (2014), “To evaluate a research study competently, you must have knowledge of each component of the research process” (p. 215). For this assignment, you will consider all that you have learned and practiced up to this point in our course and apply criteria for evaluating action research to the following: Sample Action Research Report 1: Effect of Technology in Enthusiasm for Learning Science. Finally, you will include a self-reflection. Note that it is acceptable to write in the first-person voice in the reflection.

The assignment needs to include the following areas of content. Area of Focus (1 point): Describe the area of focus and whether it involves      teaching and learning. Include support from the literature where      appropriate. Research Questions (0.5 point): List the research questions and discuss whether the      researcher states questions that were answerable given the researcher’s expertise,      time, and resources. Locus of Control (1 point): Discuss the locus of control and whether the area of      focus was within the researcher’s locus of control. Data Collection (1 point): Describe the data collection techniques and whether      the researcher used appropriate data collection techniques to answer the      study’s research questions (e.g., qualitative and/or quantitative).      Include support from the literature in your description.  Ethics (1 point): Describe the ethical challenges the researcher faced and      how they were resolved. Reflective Stance (1.5 points): Explain the ways the action research effort      contributed to the researcher’s reflective stance on the ways teaching and      learning are viewed. Action (0.5 point): Describe the actions that resulted from the study.  Action-Data Connection (1.5      points): Describe how the proposed      action connects to the study’s data analysis and interpretation. Reflection – Learning (0.5      point): Describe what you learned from      this study and the process of evaluating it, considering what insight this      researcher gave you indirectly regarding the process of action research. Reflection – Application (0.5      point): Describe what you have taken      away from this experience for use in your Final Project in this course. 

 Written Communication
The assignment needs to adhere to the following areas for written communication. Page Requirement (0.25 point): The assignment must be three to five pages, not      including title and references pages. APA Formatting (0.25 point): Use APA formatting consistently throughout. Syntax and Mechanics (0.25      point): Display meticulous      comprehension and organization of syntax and mechanics, such as spelling      and grammar. Your written work should contain no errors and be very easy      to understand. Source Requirement (0.25      point): Use no less than two scholarly      sources in addition to the sample action research report, which may be      your course textbooks. All sources on the reference page need to be used      and cited correctly within the body of the assignment.

 Review and Submit the Assignment
Review your assignment with the Grading Rubric to be sure you have achieved the distinguished levels of performance for each criterion. Next, submit the assignment to the course room for evaluation no later than day 7 of the week.
