Summary

This practical text shows students how to critique social research in a simple, hands-on manner. Designed for use in conjunction with a core research methods text, it guides students through each element of a research article, thereby helping them to develop the analytical tools and critical thinking skills they need to make an informed assessment of the research study they are critiquing.

Features

  • This primer offers balanced coverage of both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
  • For three years prior to its publication, students from a variety of disciplines (social work; education; psychology; public health; nursing) field-tested this text.
  • Both students and instructors can access a book-specific website, which offers frequently asked questions (FAQs), an evaluation template (described in the text), and other information about the text and its use.
  • Holosko encourages students to become better consumers of research; he explains what constitutes good research and inspires students to strive for this goal in their own work.
  • This brief primer is a perfect companion to any research methods book.
