Summary: The Second Edition of Educational Research is an informal and highly readable text that provides students with a clear and in-depth understanding of the different kinds of research--including technology-based--that are used in education today.

This text introduces students to the fundamental logic of empirical research and explores the sources of research ideas. Detailed descriptions guide students through the design and implementation of actual research s ...show moretudies with a balanced examination of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed research, serving as one of the book's strongest features. While quantitative research strategies are covered extensively, the text also discusses various qualitative approaches such as ethnography, historical methods, phenomenology, grounded theory, and case studies. This new edition addresses the use of technology in conducting educational research, incorporating links to a database of journal articles, extensive discussion of technologically-based research exercises, and a complete companion website.

The authors present detailed, step-by-step coverage of the key elements of research, including sampling techniques, ethical considerations, data collection methods, measurement, judging validity, experimental and non-experimental methods, descriptive and inferential statistics, qualitative data analysis, and report preparation.

Features

  • This Research Edition incorporates key term icons and chapter-ending activities to make use of the Research Navigator database of journals accessible through a fully-stocked companion web site.
  • A user-friendly presentation removes the intimidation of educational research and makes the process accessible to all students.
  • Integrates the presentation of quantitative and qualitative research so students learn how to carry out each type of research and how to judge the quality of research.
  • Unlike leading competitors, this text offers a full chapter on data analysis in qualitative research (Ch. 17).
  • Includes an in-depth discussion of the ethical issues involved in research to give students the information they need to conduct research with integrity and honesty.
  • In-text review questions, end-of-chapter summaries, study questions, and exercises help students review important material.
  • Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter focus student thinking.
  • Terms boldfaced within the text and defined in chapter margins reinforce retention of key concepts.
