Overview

Students often fear the educational research course. Don’t worry. This book is famous for its lack of jargon, for its clear and concrete explanations, and its light (often funny) tone.

As you read the book, you will build skills that you need to read educational research and produce your own. The book will help guide you through each step in creating your own research report. You can compare your work with the example published research articles in every methods chapter. In addition, the new Digital Research Tools for the 21st Century feature introduces novel tools and methods you can use to make the process of doing research easier or more efficient like using speech recognition programs to save time transcribing interviews (Chapter 15), using flip cameras and Skype to collect qualitative data (Chapter 14), and using management programs to organize citations (Chapter 21).

Received the wrong book.  ISBN does not match. Should have been a hardcover book...they sent a loose leaf packet.

sent the wrong book: will not correct it until I return the wrong one. I offered to pay for an additional copy to have shipped immediately--request denied. No problem, homework is no big deal right????????????????
