Summary: This text is intended for instructors who emphasize teaching students how to locate, read, and interpret, and apply the findings of educational research studies. This revision addresses how to design and conduct a research study in more detail.

The text includes numerous recent, published research articles involving high-interest problems of educational practice. The chapters, which treat quantitative, qualitative, and applied forms of educational research more, stand alone, allowing instructors to choose those they want to cover. This text brings research alive for educators by introducing readers to people who actually "do" research. Designed for courses focused primarily on applying, rather than conducting research, it includes 13 actual research articles, reprinted in their entirety. The book makes no assumptions about readers' prior knowledge of research or statistics. This text builds students' confidence so that they are able to successfully read research reports and research. For the first time, readers will see the relevance of research to educational practice.


  • The text provides detailed treatment of how to locate, read, review, and apply the findings of research reports in the education literature. The 13 reprinted research reports cover all the major quantitative research methods and qualitative research approaches discussed in the text.
  • Original researcher's comments accompanying each reprinted article address many of the challenges and opportunities involved in the design, conduct, and reporting of research.
  • A balanced approach to both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
  • Accessible coverage on statistical analysis provides a non-threatening introduction to the basic techniques needed to apply or conduct research. (Ch. 6 ). The reprinted research reports include footnotes, prepared by the authors, that explain specialized statistics or refer to book pages where the statistics are discussed.
  • Updated treatment of action research (Ch. 15) shows students how they can conduct research projects in their work settings in order to improve their practice or solve work-related problems.
  • Chapter-opening vignettes introduce the ideas of the chapter and show how a typical student benefits from learning the information presented in the chapter.
  • Provides strong coverage on the most recent computer search procedures for applying research.
  • End-of-chapter multiple-choice questions allow students to monitor their comprehension.
