Comprehensive yet accessible 

The updated Eleventh Edition of Educational Research: Competencies for Analysis and Applications introduces research mainly at a “how-to” skill and application level. A total instructional system, the book includes stated learning outcomes, instruction, and procedures for evaluating each outcome. It supports readers as they develop expertise in research, learning key concepts and skills and becoming involved in the research process itself. The authors take a down-to-earth approach that helps the reader become both an educational researcher and a competent consumer of educational research.

 

Personalize learning with MyEducationLab ®

MyEducationLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with the text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students see key concepts demonstrated through real classroom video footage, practice what they learn, test their understanding, and receive feedback to guide their learning and ensure they master key learning outcomes.

Editorial Reviews

From reviews of the book:   “Entire text is very accessible – through both language and visual aids; easy to understand examples for nearly every situation described in the text; beginning researchers will appreciate the attentiveness to context, while more experienced students will find a comprehensive text that expertly connects the many intertwining elements of the research process.” — Lauren Saenz, Boston College   “[T]he numerous summary tables … organize and consolidate the material in one convenient place …. end-of-chapter summaries are especially well done… presented in a topical format [and help] students to review the material… end-of-chapter tasks [are] … especially helpful to students who don’t quite know how to get started on the task.”  — Dwight R. Gard, Texas Tech University   “[T]he authors’ writing style … is instructive, engaging and at a level that is appropriate for any graduate student seeking a general understanding of research methods. The objectives and summary tables at the beginning of the chapter focus the students’ attention on the important ideas … numbered steps and examples provide clarification, especially where procedures are involved. The tasks and examples presented at the end of the chapter add relevancy to the chapter topics.” — Jann W. MacInnes, University of Florida
