Educators are increasingly accountable for the outcome of their efforts. This vital resource will assist them in assessing the validity of research claims by leading the reader through a revealing examination of five critical questions: Does it work? (the causal question) How does it work? (the process question) Is it worthwhile? (the cost question) Will it work for me? (the usability question) Is it working for me? (the evaluation question) Making Sense of Research will change the way you read and think about research, and thereby help you enhance school improvement, sustain your vision of quality education, and attain your mission and ultimately increase student achievement.

I was as far as Chapter 4 and looked ahead to Chapter 5, then noticed the chapter after 5 was 4...again??? This was followed by chapter 5...again, and then with chapter 8. So somehow chapters 4 & 5 were duplicated, and 6 & 7 were left out. I contacted B&N as soon as I noticed. At first I was told that there was nothing that could be done since it was beyond the 14 day return policy. When I lost my cool over this response, I was then put on hold again and told that a new book would be sent out to me right away. I just got word that the book has been shipped, so I'm praying that this one has all the chapters. If not, maybe the two books combined with have them all - I can only hope. So, you might not think to do it - but give a quick look through to make sure you have all chapters in order as soon as you get the book. Apparently someone was asleep at the printing company.
