Anchor Action Research

WHAT IS IT?

Anchor Action Research means that the research is concerned with changes in current policies and practices and is anchored through commonalities among the studies in methodology and student academic achievement as outcome variables.

WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?

A mixed-method design includes both

  1. a quasi-experimental design (e.g., pretest-post-test design with a control condition) and
  2. a qualitative analysis of the classroom context of the action research and the changes in instruction/curriculum.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE?

The purpose of these fellowship awards is to encourage P-12 teachers and university faculty to replicate the successful Anchor-Action Research study and to disseminate the instructional approach in the NET-Q partnership, thus multiplying the effect of successful instructional interventions.

Up to 10 of the successful Anchor Action Research projects in any particular year are eligible for additional funding for up to a typical award of $5,000.
