Primarily Intended For M.Ed. And M.Phil. Students And Research Scholars, The Main Topics Included In The Book Are Meaning, Concept And Significance Of Research In Education, Action Research, Research Process, Sampling, Methods Of Research, Tools Of Research, Construction And Procedure Of Research Tools, And The Research Report. These Topics Throw Enough Light On The Importance Of Educational Research.It Is Hoped That The Book Will Prove Highly Useful To The Students, Teachers, Teacher-Educators And Research Scholars Of Education. It Is An Ideal Reference Source For All Those Who Need To Understand Educational Research In Depth And Who May Conduct Original Research For A Dissertation Or Thesis.
This second edition of a core text for introductory courses in educational research is a unique text-workbook that actually carries students through the process of designing and analysing a research project of their choice.
Fundamentals of Educational Research succeeds in cutting through the complexities of research to give the novice reader a sound basis to define, develop, and conduct study, while providing insights for even the accomplished reader. This best-selling book is of value to all social researchers, but in particular to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers employed in private industry, management and government agencies. Anderson discusses the research process and offers a wealth of information on how to define a research problem, plan a study, develop a research framework, collect the data, analyse it and write it into a credible paper or thesis. He has captured the essential components of the research process in a book that balances the quantitative and qualitative perspectives through both the academic and consulting research traditions.
"Introduction to Educational Research: A Critical Thinking Approach 2e is an engaging and informative core text that enables students to think clearly and critically about the scientific process of research. In acheiving its goal to make research accessible to all educators and equip them with the skills to understand and evaluate published research, the text examines how educational research is conducted across the major traditions of quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and action research. The text is oriented toward consumers of educational research and uses a thinking-skills approach to its coverage of major ideas"--
Examines erotetic inferences, those that underlie the process of arriving at a question, a process similar in many ways to that of coming to a conclusion. Reviews existing logical theories of questions, questions in natural and formalized languages, semantics, the evocation and generation of questions, and erotetic implication and arguments. Assumes only some knowledge of elementary formal logic, and no exposure to the new field of erotetic logic. Of possible interest to philosophers of science, cognitive scientists, and computer scientists as well as logicians. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
Counseling and Educational Research: Evaluation and Application prepares readers to be good consumers and evaluators of research. Using concrete examples from published articles, author Rick A. Houser teaches students to take a systematic approach to evaluating professional literature critically and using it responsibly. The Fourth Edition covers evidence-based research, qualitative methods, program evaluation, and mixed methods; includes new discussions on how national accreditation standards in counseling (CACREP) and education (CAEP) apply to research; and examines how cultural influences can affect the research process.
Methods in Educational Research Methods in Educational Research is designed to prepare students for the real world of educational research. It focuses on scientifically-based methods, school accountability, and the professional demands of the twenty-first century, empowering researchers to take an active role in conducting research in their classrooms, districts, and the greater educational community. Like the first edition, this edition helps students, educators, and researchers develop a broad and deep understanding of research methodologies. It includes substantial new content on the impact of No Child Left Behind legislation, school reform, quantitative and qualitative methodologies, logic modeling, action research, and other areas. Special features to assist the teaching and learning processes include vignettes illustrating research tied to practice, suggested readings at the end of each chapter, and discussion questions to reinforce chapter content. Praise for the Previous Edition "A new attempt to make this subject more relevant and appealing to students. Most striking is how useful this book is because it is really grounded in educational research. It is very well written and quite relevant for educational researchers or for the student hoping to become one." -PsycCRITIQUES/American Psychological Association "I applaud the authors for their attempt to cover a wide range of material. The straightforward language of the book helps make the material understandable for readers." -Journal of MultiDisciplinary Evaluation
This book explores educational research in terms of the relationship between epistemology, methodology and practice. Divided into two sections, the first examines the frameworks which underpin the methods educational researchers use. The second looks at a broad spectrum of approaches, including feminist approaches, action research, ethnography and biographical research. The issues covered are central to all within the research community including students undertaking research degrees or research methodology courses.
