Summary: This supplementary guide is for students who are learning how to evaluate published reports of empirical research. Numerous excerpts from journals in the social and behavioral sciences provide examples that allow students to learn the practical aspects of evaluating research. By de-emphasizing jargon, this book allows students to begin evaluating research with confidence. New to this edition: More emphasis on evaluating research in light of theoretical frameworks. Al ...show moreso new: A clear explanation of practical versus statistical significance.

Features :

  • A new supplementary guide for students who are learning how to evaluate reports of empirical research published in academic journals.
  • Your students will learn the practical aspects of evaluating research -- not just how to apply a laundry list of technical terms from their textbooks.
  • Each chapter is organized around evaluation questions. For each question, there is a concise explanation of how to apply it in the evaluation of research reports.
  • Numerous examples from journals in the social and behavioral sciences illustrate the application of the evaluation questions. Students see actual examples of strong and weak features of published reports.
  • Common sense models for evaluation combined with a de-emphasis on jargon make it possible for students to start evaluating research articles the first week of class.
  • The structure of this book enables students to work with confidence while evaluating articles for homework.
  • Avoids oversimplification in the evaluation process by describing the nuances that may make an article publishable even though it has serious methodological flaws. Students learn when and why certain types of flaws may be tolerated. They learn why evaluation should not be performed mechanically.
  • Field tested with students just beginning their study of research methods, this book received very high student evaluations.
New to this edition:
  • More emphasis on evaluating research in light of theoretical frameworks. Also new: A clear explanation of practical versus statistical significance.
