    In the article we present action research as a factor in the teacher's professional development and as part of processes for ensuring quality in education. Action research is characteristically performed by practitioners, in this case teachers, often with the help of the school counselling service and the mentor, and directly oriented towards an improvement in practice. In the article we analyse the main characteristics of action research and the model of teachers´ professional development. We present the results of empirical research which were used to determine whether there are any evident differences between teachers who have experience in research and those without such experience in terms of their interest in participation in the research process and at which stage of professional development are those teachers who are most prepared to do research.
