B> A classic in its field, Research Methods in Education retains the clear, concise writing style and organization that has made the book so popular. It helps with the evaluation of research literature as well as the mastering of research methodology. It emphasizes the rationale for commonly used research procedures and their applications. The nature of educational research is outlined and the steps in the research process are clearly defined.
