Synopsis:
This substantially revised text provides a comprehensive, highly accessible, and student friendly introduction to the principles, concepts, and methods currently used in educational research. This text provides a balanced combination of quantitative and qualitative methods and enables students to master skills in reading, understanding, critiquing, and conducting research. The treatment of qualitative research is parallel to that of quantitative research to enable students to better understand all approaches to research. This text uses extensive examples from different journals, thoughtful pedagogy that includes instructional aids, instructional tests, key terms, application problems, concept maps, criteria for evaluating studies, and MyEducationalResearchLab, a new interactive website.

Review:

Research in Education emphasizes evidence-based inquiry while providing a comprehensive, highly accessible, and student-friendly introduction to the principles, concepts, and methods currently used in educational research. Introductory chapters provide an introduction to research and research problems, major types of research designs, and the review of literature. Methodological chapters provide explicit guidelines for consuming and conducting qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, and action research.

 

Many examples and article excerpts are used throughout the text to demonstrate and highlight best practices in educational research and to provide a basis for student review and critique.
