As you report assumptions which you held as the story progressed, you need to show how you tested them, especially if these assumptions were privately held. In terms of our example above, the researcher needs to test whether or not the group, which he thinks is out to wreck the project, actually intends that. So what? The third issue in action research is how the action research project is contributing theory or usable knowledge. As action research is context bound in a particular setting and set of events it needs to have some interest and relevance to the uninvolved reader, the third-person readership.
If you are writing a dissertation, the meta cycle is the focus of your dissertation. Remember, the action research project and your dissertation are not identical. They are integrally interlinked, but they are not the same. The project on which you are working may go ahead irrespective of whether or not you are writing a dissertation. Your dissertation is an inquiry into the project, hence you need to describe both cycles in a way that demonstrates the quality of rigour of your inquiry. , 2000; Reason and Torbert, 2001; Torbert, 2001).
2000). Torbert defines action inquiry as ‘a kind of scientific inquiry that is conducted in everyday life . . that deals primarily with “primary” data encountered “on-line” in the midst of perception and action’ (1991: 220). Torbert develops the inquiry process by linking the ability to engage in the rigour of action inquiry with stages of ego development. As individuals advance through stages of ego development they may develop the skills that confront them at those stages. As Torbert (1999) illustrates, the goal orientation of the Achiever stage can evolve into the self-conscious responsiveness of the Strategist stage.
