Product Description

Review

'This is a book that even the most confirmed qualitative researcher can highly recommend to students. And for any course in quantitative methods it would be my first choice. The clear and interesting communicative style draws in the reader both to an understanding of some of the basis building blocks of quantitative research but also to some of answers to critiques of certain ways of using statistics. Those wanting just to be able to understand quantitative research as well as the statistically unsure wanting to use it are unlikely to be disappointed. There is a growing need for Daniel Muijs's text also in order to respond to the burgeoning in interest in mixed methodology' -
Professor Liz Todd, Newcastle University

Format: Paperback
At last, a book that not only explains statistics for educational research clearly, accurately and accessibly, but also gives step-by-step instructions - with screen shots - for how to carry out each procedure using SPSS. Muijs' book is a must-have for every education major, as well as for arts graduates doing postgraduate qualifications in education. I will be using it this year to introduce my postgrads, most of whom have backgrounds in the arts, to the stats they need for their courses; and I'll urge them to buy their own copies. This will not only give them a ready reference book, but will also, I'm sure, reduce significantly the numbers of anguished emails and last-minute one-to-one tutorials I succumb to in the frantic fortnight before term papers are due. Bless your heart, Daniel Muijs.
