Educational Research is a practical, step-by-step core research text with a truly balanced, inclusive and integrated overview of the processes involved. It first examines the general steps in the research process and then details the procedures for conducting specific types of quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods studies. Direct guidance on reading research is offered throughout and helpful features provide opportunities for practice.

In the 6th Edition, examples are now drawn from a broad range of fields including program evaluation, multicultural research, counseling, school psychology, and learning and cognition.
