For courses in Research Methods/Educational Research. Long recognized as the market leader in Introduction to Educational Research courses, Educational Research: Competencies for Analysis and Applications, eighth edition, remains a practical text focused on the skills and procedures students need in order to become competent consumers and producers of educational research. The text uses a direct, step-by-step approach to the research process and incorporates Tasks and articles throughout to provide students with the practice they need to master research steps and evaluation. The accessible writing style and light, humorous tone also help demystify this demanding course. In addition to substantially reworking the text to make it even more accessible to the student, key changes in the eighth edition include: expanded coverage of qualitative research with two new chapters (Narrative Research and Ethnographic Research), increased coverage of how to use technology in the research process, and new chapters on Single-Subject Research and Mixed Methods. This comprehensive instructional resource encompasses the full spectrum of the field, making it appropriate as a core text for an introductory course in educational research.

    This edition has some minor changes from the 6th and 7th edition, mainly just page numbers. If you can find the 6th or 7th edition cheaper, it is vitural the same book

    Learning how to decipher the technical jargon surrounding research is never easy. This book makes it easy. Along with thorough explanations and an abundance of examples, there is a bit of humor tossed in. The humor helps break up the intense explanations. There are also many charts and graphs that help synthesize the information into an easy learning format. I would recommend this book for anyone who has to learn about research.
