Comparison between Action Research and Experiment Research

Jane Franseth, of the U.S. office of Education, finds Action research as a systematic examination conducted by individuals or groups studying their own practices in search of sound answers to unsolved problems in their own jobs.

Generally, the process by which the researcher attempts to study their problems scientifically in order to guide, correct and evaluate their decisions and actions is called action research.

On the other hand, Experimental research is a most scientifically sophisticated research-method. The researcher takes steps to prove the fact in a systematic and logical way. He takes the problems and applies the different types of theoretical knowledge. Then he chooses which factors are actually applicable for the solution of the problem.


This research adds new knowledge, new theories and new ways to the educational practice.
