Designing and Conducting Research: Inquiry in Education and Social Science
This text examines different types of research questions, the design or planning process, and the analysis and interpretation of results. In this edition, the authors address both qualitative and quantitative methodology, examine single-subject and group experiments, and advise on selecting an appropriate analysis. A feature of this book is the research simulations, which give students practice at each step of the research process. These practice problems are accompanied by simulation feedback at the end of the chapter.
