Very useful way of presenting research to students.
A bit overwrought. Also, the way it talks about students makes it clear it is only meant for instructors. Frankly my students would be insulted by some of the assumptions asserted about students. Also, it's approach to concept mapping is quite a bit different than mine, which is more using it as a pragmatic tool for organizing thinking, research and planning practical action, not so much for generating data.
A useful text to support researchers who want an introduction in to how to use and analyse visual methods for data collection.
Interesting book so I have added to my recommended books. My current book is Educational Research (Gall, Gall, Borg)
