This is the third article in the action research in deafblindness series by members of the Action Research Work Group of the Deafblind International (DbI) Research Network. Action research starts with a problem that is translated into a question and looks beyond just proving a particular intervention effective. The goal is to develop new knowledge that will have a positive impact on participants (Cochran-Smith & Lytle, 2009). In action research, the intervention, data sources, and even the research question may change. This is not only accepted, but encouraged when moving through cycles of intervention, data collection, and data analysis (Herr & Anderson, 2005).
