The new edition of this unique book focuses on helping readers to acquire knowledge and skills needed to read, interpret, evaluate, and write about educational research; and to make decisions based on that research. Using a non-mathematical, non-technical introduction focusing on the users, rather than the producers of research, the book provides an introduction to research that is appropriate for educators and others involved in making educational decisions. Actual research reports in an appendix provide practice in tackling research presentations. Updated examples present current qualitative and quantitative research, both general and content specific, as it is used in elementary, middle, secondary, and special education. New information and strategies in Chapter 11 address electronic database searches for research reports. A valuable book for anyone who has a need to understand and use educational research.
