Research Methods in Education
- Joseph Check - University of Massachusetts Boston, USA
- Russell K. Schutt - University of Massachusetts Boston, USA
The text is divided into three sections: Foundations of Research (five chapters), Research Design and Data Collection (seven chapters), and Analyzing and Reporting Data (three chapters). This tripartite conceptual framework honors traditional quantitative approaches while reflecting the growing popularity of qualitative studies, mixed method designs, and school-based techniques. This approach provides a comprehensive, conceptually unified, and well-written introduction to the exciting but complex field of educational research.
A good supplimentary textbook
Brilliant well-written book. Easy to read students enjoyed this book and supported their learning.
Loved the examples and the additional resources.
This book provides a comprehensive guide for students undertaking reseach within education with text and structure that is both easy to follow and understand
I would definitely recommend this text to students undertaking reseach.
A good resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
More for an undergrad audience not post grad, But very good to refresh existing knowledge and keeping up to date
It seemed straightforward and was priced well for students
A very well written book that should be of interest to learners. I have highly recommended it to students but given the current economic climate, cannot insist on an essential status
This book is very comprehensive. All chapters are enough detailed for students. Especially, the appendicies are very usefull for teachers and students.
For example, App. A (Questions to ask about reseacrh article) and App. B (How to read a research article) have critical importance for all researchers, master and doctoral students.
And also, In my opinion, Using the web site of the book (Instructor Teaching Site) can support students' effective learning, increase the course quality and make to easy the course management.
I will recommend Research Method in Education as supplemental book in my course at this term
A good book for those in the early stages of research methods for education. Clearly written with simplicity in mind which takes you nicely through the different stages of research.
