Action Research, Fundamental Research, and Educational Practices


by Stephen M. Corey 1949

In this discussion of the general problem of increasing the influence of research findings on educational practices, an attempt will be made to differentiate between two types of inquiry: traditional or fundamental research and action research. In this differentiation, admittedly somewhat exaggerated to state the issues in broad relief, the purpose, the design, the criteria of evaluation, and the qualifications of personnel for each type of investigation will be elaborated. Finally, the suggestion will be made that the possible contribution of action research to the improvement of educational practices has been substantially underestimated.
