"This is a handy, practical text for newcomers to qualitative research who are preparing a proposal."
"This is by far the most readable text on methodology I've used in my work with education graduate students. Its careful, detailed and rich explanation of the research process makes it a crucial tool for anyone working with students who are ready to begin the process of qualitative research. But it is the thick, authentic descriptions of researchers actively engaging in the puzzles and dilemmas of doing complex, ethical, and socially powerful research that makes it an invaluable guide for the student at all stages in their research process.
“A student friendly book that would have been beneficial to my own research development in graduate school.”
“The authors create a mosaic of qualitative research procedures using text, tables, figures, and vignettes that move the reader between the theoretical and practical aspects of conducting quality research.”
“This text will be helpful to graduate students when they first encounter qualitative research and its possibilities. It is both practical and philosophical, and it provides useful advice on strategies to embrace and pitfalls to avoid.”
Using this as the primary text in EPY 718.
We adopted this as a suggested reading for our course because understanding research is an essential part of our doctoral program. The text is well laid out, provides a great source of references for further study, and outlines most types of qualitative research in a way that is understandable and applicable.
There's a lot to like about this text, and particularly the activities and supports that come with it. The content of the Creswell book just aligned better with the University's goals and objectives for the course--particularly providing a depth of understanding on the specific research methodologies.
Excellent content and easy read for graduate level researchers. Comprehensive and covers qualitative design and genre choices.
