'This book provides a comprehensive review of issues related to educational research and enquiry. It serves as a valuable guide for students and as a reference for more experienced researchers. Its wide coverage of methodologies and strategies give it a broad appeal and it deserves to become a standard text on educational research methodology.' Graeme Hutcheson, Lecturer in Quantitative Methods and Statistical Modelling, Manchester University, UK
This book is a helpful resource on how to start the 'journey of research' keeping in mind that it is for a broader, not specific purpose. The book is a useful tool for initial student researchers who have some background in social science investigation.
'Educational Research and Inquiry is an excellent resource that explains, challenges and exemplifies. A key feature is that it helpfully weaves together research methodological and substantive aspects so for example the challenges of researching children are discussed in the context of such questions as 'what is a child'? Quantitative methods are given considerable coverage, yet newer areas like visual methodologies are helpfully addressed.'Kathy Hall, Professor of Education and Head of Department, University College Cork, Ireland
