The Second Edition of Educational Research is an informal and highly readable text that provides students with a clear and in-depth understanding of the different kinds of research that are used in education today. This text introduces students to the fundamental logic of empirical research and explores the sources of research ideas. Detailed descriptions guide students through the design and implementation of actual research studies with examination of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed research, serving as one of the book's strongest features. This new edition features the use of technology in conducting educational research, incorporating links to a database of journal articles (Research Navigator), extensive discussion of technologically-based research exercises, and a complete companion website.

Access to this site is described on the inside front cover and the site includes an extensive database of Journals, NY Times articles, writing tips and relevant web links. New end-of-chapter materials, including discussion questions, additional exercises, links to relevant Web sites, suggested readings, and exercise sheets, provide professors with assignments and materials to discuss during class and give students more opportunity to learn the material and apply it.
  • A new introductory chapter provides a broader understanding of the similarities and differences of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed research (Ch. 2).
  • A full chapter on mixed methods research has been added because of its growing popularity and practical importance (Ch. 14).
  • Opening vignettes in each chapter focus students' attention and interest by providing students with a connection between current events and issues and the world of educational research.
  • Revised and improved Chapter 3 developing research questions now includes additional material on the use of the Internet in conducting literature searches and constructing research topics.
  • Incorporates the latest changes to the APA publication manual to provide students with the most up-to-date information about how to prepare a research report for publication (Ch. 18).
