4 Action Research Overview Pre Planning: Identification of Need1. Develop/Review Student Learning Expectations2. Examine alignment of learning expectations with assessments3. Review assessment data4. Identify areas of need based on assessmentPlan:1. Describe the current process for addressing the identified area of need (flow chart)2. Review data to determine baseline performance in the specific area identified(Run Chart/Pareto Diagram)3. Identify potential root causes contributing to the identified area of need(Cause & Effect Diagram, 5 Why’s, Relations Diagram)4. Study research-based best practice/improvement theory addressing areas of needDO1. Plan for implementation of improvement theory (Force Field Analysis, Action Plan)2. Implement research-based best practices improvement theory based on root causes according to the Action Plan3. Monitor the implementation of research-based best practice/improvement theory to insure integrity and fidelity 4. Assess student learningAct:1. Standardize the implementation of research-based best practice (improvement theory) that improved student learning (revise the flow chart to reflect changes made to the system)2. If improvement theory was unsuccessful continue the PDSA cycle (try another improvement theory based on the next identified root causes)Action ResearchOverviewStudy:1. Examine student assessment results (compare to baseline)2. Assess the impact of research-based best practice/improvement theory on student achievement
