    Whether you're new to collaborative action research or want to improve the rigor of your existing process, you can use the practical tools, step-by-step quality-assessment rubrics, and reflection prompts in this book to systematically explore any range of topics, from students' questioning practices to the district's science curriculum.

PAR emphasizes collective inquiry and .

    Action research can be defined as “an approach in which the action researcher and a client collaborate in the diagnosis of the problem and in the development of a solution based on the diagnosis”.In other words, one of the main characteristic traits of action research relates to collaboration between researcher and member of organisation in order to solve organizational problems. It is a type of action-research, a comparative research on the conditions and effects of various forms of social action, and research leading to social action. Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice (Lewin , reproduced in Lewin ).
