The #1 resource for carrying out educational research as part of postgraduate study.
High-quality educational research requires careful consideration of every aspect of the process. This all-encompassing textbook written by leading international experts gives students and early career researchers a considered overview of principles that underpin research, and key qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods for research design, data collection and analysis.
This third edition includes four new chapters:
- Disseminating your research
- Data science and computational research methods
- Observational methods
- Analysis of variance (ANOVA)
Plus a new Research essentials feature that highlights key ‘must-haves’ or misconceptions relating to each methodological approach, research design or analytical tool discussed.
This is essential reading for postgraduate students on education courses and early career researchers looking to sharpen their research practice.
This book covers a wide range of issues in relation to educational research - there is something in there for all my students. Each chapter is short and to the point.
Research Methods and Methodologies in Education is a book I have used repeatedly since teaching Research on Foundation degree and BA top up
This book is beneficial for doctoral students because it provides clear and concise details on the steps to performing scholarly research designs. I am highly recommending this book for my courses.
