A classic in its field, Research Methods in Education retains the clear, concise writing style and organization that has made the text so popular. It has been updated with a new chapter on evaluating research papers, additional information on computers and software used in research, and a data disk consisting of three data sets that accompanies the text.
Research Methods in Education helps students evaluate research literature as well as master research methodology. It emphasizes the rationale for commonly used research procedures and their applications. The nature of educational research is outlined and the steps in the research process are clearly defined. Because identification of a research problem is so important, the entire second chapter is devoted to this topic.
The text is broad in scope — covering both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies as well as sampling designs, measurement, data collection, preparation of data sets for computer analysis, statistical procedures, and reports. Research Methods in Education gives students a solid understanding of all the elements of research.
Disk (Windows and Mac), packaged FREE with the textbook, contains three data sets to allow students to work with actual data.
Each chapter concludes with a “Summary,” “Key Concepts,” “Exercises,” “Notes,” and “References.”
