Editorial Reviews

NACADA
"This is a superior book with many features that make for an excellent textbook...This text does an excellent job of defining the varying types of research and settles the question of whether qualitative or quantitative is superior for educational research by including mixed research models as a preferred model in some cases...I would recommend [this text] as a "must have" for anyone involved in research and program evaluation and one that an advising office should own." — Anita L. Carter

Pam Woolner
"This is an extensive, and generally thorough, treatment of research design and method. It will prove useful to anyone reading research literature relating to education, as well as those intending to conduct research projects of whatever scale. For what is essentially a reference book, it is surprisingly readable, though at over 600 pages it is perhaps on the large side for a reading on the bus."
Chapman Frazier
"Comprehensive overview of Research Methodology."
Tom Dobbins
"This will be a great text and reference for my students."
Gina Coffee
"I require this textbook for an introductory research methods graduate course. It really meets the needs of the students, as they find it comprehensive and easy to read, understand, and navigate."
