Educational Research

Front Cover
Macmillan, Jan 1, 1983 - Education - 392 pages
Written in the language of education, not of research, this introduction to educational research methods focuses on research as a system of examining and analyzing educational outcomes -- and the many ways in which teachers, administrators, and guidance counselors can apply research findings to solving the day-to-day problems they face. It provides numerous examples taken from classroom teaching, counseling, administration, and other areas of education. Covers all of the traditional topics of educational research -- with a distinctive emphasis on the need for working educators to continue in the role of researchers while they teach. Provides thorough treatment of measurement essentials for those with little or no statistical background. Features a wealth of classroom examples, along with dozens of charts, tables, and graphs. The "Second Edition" features new chapters on qualitative methods and meta analysis, and interjects an overall qualitative "flavor" throughout.
