-- This book educates students to become intelligent consumers of educational research and introduces basic research principles to those who may eventually use research in their work.

 

Principles for conducting research and criteria for evaluating its overall credibility are presented in a concise manner, with numerous excerpts from published studies, to enable students to  learn to read, understand, and evaluate research, and judge the usefulness of the findings for educational practice. There is extensive use of aides to facilitate student learning, including chapter objectives, roadmaps and concept maps, study questions, consumer tips, over 150 examples from published articles (also includes full length articles), and author reflections. The Sixth Edition includes a more extensive presentation of experimental and quasi-experimental design, consistent with the current emphasis on conducting “scientific research,” qualitative data analysis, effect size, and two new chapters devoted to mixed-method studies and action research.

Educational Research: Fundamentals for the Consumer, Sixth Edition

James H. McMillan

 

“Our faculty reviewed all the available texts in the field and felt Educational Research best fit our needs. We teach this course to a wide variety of students in a variety of majors (counseling, physical education, curriculum and instruction, educational administration, etc.) and it did the best job of providing for all these individual needs.”

–Steve Neill, Emporia State University

 

“I think the features add a nice element and are helpful for students to better understand the text. I direct students to the research articles and use some of the charts and tables in my lectures."

–Anastasia Elder, Mississippi State University
