Review:

“Understanding Education Research is about what it takes to become research literate. It is a must read for all graduate students and educators who want to become researchers. The book offers a meaningful framework for designing educational research through a systematic analysis of the research phases. The authors decipher the logic of research articles, while supporting critical reading. Practice exercises throughout the book and examples of the key qualitative research methods are provided with insights that lead the readers to question their roles as educational professionals.”
―Francois Victor Tochon, University of Wisconsin–Madison

“I found this book to be both practical and thought provoking. Having taught educational research for many years, I think this will be a book that faculty will enjoy discussing with their students. Students will appreciate how it makes research more accessible.”
―Barbara A. Greene, University of Oklahoma

“Understanding Education Research is an insightful, accessible introduction to the basics of reading and critiquing educational research. Taking a unique perspective on the importance of developing skills in research literacy, the authors offer up a set of lenses and examples that help students learn to read research articles in a systematic, step-by-step manner.”
―Sarah E Peterson, University of Texas at El Paso
