Prior to development of your strategies that you might want to implement in the educational setting, it is important to understand the makeup of the participants for your Action Research proposal through a description of the demographics of your study.
On the Action Research Proposal template, the demographics section is comprised of three subsections: Demographic Data, Target Group, Baseline Data.
Answer the questions for each subsection below in a paragraph form.
Where/what is the research site?
Who is directly involved?
What statistics will give a clear understanding of the context and culture of the research site?
Who are the students you are trying to impact?
How do you think this strategy or content focus will benefit the target group?
What are the baseline data that support your choice for this area of focus?
What patterns or trends do you see in the data?
What is your proof that an issue exists in this focus area?
Do not use names as identifiers for the research site or participants. Please also take care to be vague with details of your geographic site (e.g. a large urban city in the northeast rather than saying Boston). Finally, be conscious of the use of the place name or district name in any research references that you include for the data you are sharing. For example, if you consult the U.S. census data, please do not provide a link that includes the location name but rather include the link to the larger census database.
You may not depend solely on standardized test scores as your baseline data.
Make sure to cite any sources you use in researching the demographics.

The student sample is from the Northeastern Coast of the United States of American. The student population under sample are special need students who have additional challenges as it relates to socioeconomic status as many of my students are confined to group homes both temporary and long term. The total student sample will consist of (26) students in total. As evidenced by the cohort’s student achievement data the aggregate group’s performance is about (1) year below grade level expectation. The social plight of these students further complicates or might I say compromises the validity of the student’s individual and aggregate student performance as it relates to proficiency, however both student cohorts are very similar in demographic profile and make-up....
