Abstract Many educational action researchers use interviews as a method for gathering data. However, these interviews are usually on an individual basis and do not capture interactions between participants in the way focus groups can. In this paper some advantages and challenges of conducting locus groups with adolescents are discussed using examples from an investigation of a senior high school personal development program.
