Abstract: Classroom-based research is seen as a natural growth of the conscientious teachers' normal teaching activities: a conscious effort to find alternative ways of teaching and a systematic and objective approach to their verification. It is proposed that the concept of sampling is fundamental to the issue between traditional and action research. It is argued that a re-orientation to sampling-over-time-at-one-spot rather than sampling-overspace-at-one-point-of-time may lend localized educational research with greater relevance to the teachers' concerns for what happens in their classrooms. An example of how a primary school teacher used classroom-based research to improve pupil performance in Mathematics is illustrated.
