This is essential reading for anyone getting to grips with running an RCT in schools. It demystifies the statistical analysis of trials data. Coverage of the historical controversy surrounding the method, in conjunction with guidance on reporting, provides a measured view of the role of experiments in education research.
This is a well written text which offers a babbled view of the use of Randomised Controlled Trails (RCTs) in education highlighting the uses and the pitfalls if they are applied badly. There is a drive at the moment for development of positivist paradigms so this is an important text to have access to for educational researchers.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
