Routine to Research, Institute Research, Classroom Action Research


Academic Research covers studies pertaining to specific populations at the national or international level. Institutional research is a type of research with a narrower scope that studies and researches for data, information, and body of knowledge for educational administrators to use as bases in making decisions. Classroom Action Research (CAR) is a research that is not used to refer to wider society. This type of research is referred to as Routine to Research (R to R). It is directly conducted with a specific population that aims to solve the problem at the classroom level.
