The present study set out to investigate EFL students’ responses to action research and the idea of a teacher being a researcher. The participants of the study were 130 Master students learning English as a foreign language at Batna University. The data was collected from the participants by means of a questionnaire. Furthermore, field notes, students’ research studies, and informal interviews were used as further data collection instruments. First of all, common research areas that our students were interested in were identified. Then, their reactions towards the stages followed in classroom research are determined. Next, their responses towards the idea of a teacher being a researcher and their feelings related to taking part in research studies when they actually started teaching were dealt with. Finally, students’ further comments and suggestions related to classroom research were reported.

Key words: Classroom-research, action research, ELT.
