Overview

Educational Research: A Guide to the Process is a different kind of research text. It emphasizes the process of research, that is, what researchers actually do as they go about designing and carrying out their research activities. Rather than passively reading about research operations, it promotes content mastery by using a three-step pedagogical model that involves: a manageable chunk of text, a comprehension or application exercise, and author feedback on the exercise. The text contains approximately 150 of these exercise-feedback units.

The second edition has been thoroughly updated, expanded from 15 to 20 chapters, and reorganized into two parts. Part I covers basic aspects of the research process, provides an example of a student research proposal, and shows how to evaluate a research report. Part II provides a separate chapter for each research methodology, including two chapters on qualitative research. Other noteworthy changes include more annotated studies and more visual illustrations of statistical and research methods.

Booknews
Wallen and Fraenkel (both in education at San Francisco State U., Wallen is now emeritus) seek to jump-start students in the process used to conduct research by allowing them to actively experience it using the questions and activities in the text. The basic concepts of educational research are outlined in 12 chapters in part one. Part two is on research methodologies, including experimental, single- subject, causal-comparative, correlational, survey, content-analysis and qualitative. Annotation c.
