“These authors have done a masterful job in unpacking the fundamental issues in research and disciplined inquiry. They consistently help their readers to understand that in research, as in life, it essentially boils down to validity and reliability.”
—Wayne H. Slater, University of Maryland
“The book is perfect for introductory students and does not swim in its own self-importance. The language is top notch, the examples are helpful, and the graphic features (tables, figures) are uncomplicated and contain important information in an easy-to-understand format.” —John A. Huss, Northern Kentucky University
"The simulations and activities provide valuable engaging experiences for a range of “school leaders.” They are well thought through and provide reflection on issues ranging from confidentiality to professional ethics."—James E. Barr, Nicholls State University
“The Student Workbook and Simulated Problems is a valuable component that clearly differentiates this research textbook from others. I highly recommend this workbook as a valuable component to any research course, regardless of level. The book’s treatment of time-series designs is also valuable.”
—Alfred P. Rovai, Regent University
