Engaging students as researchers who examine teaching, learning, leadership, or anything to do with education is called participatory action research, or PAR.

Student researchers actively work to transform education during and after their research, and reflect throughout the process. Meaningful Student Involvement happens when PAR emphasizes co-learning among students and between students and adults, and embeds action with stated learning goals focused on students experiencing and transforming schools in new ways.
