Determining goals in research

Date of publication: June 15, 1959

Author: Shirley A. Star


If you take even the most casual look at action research, probably two key things stand out about it. First, it usually proceeds with something of an experimental design; and, second, something of a cult has grown up about it. If you go into the "how-to-do-it" literature of program evaluation, you emerge with the impression that its authors, at least, believe that it is a totally independent field of social research, whose problems and methods are uniquely special.
