Product description


'Research Methods in Education contains much theoretical material, but this is supported by many practical examples and down-to-earth guidance. It is very clearly written, and demystifies the theory aspects of education research. The 200 pages of supplementary material are particularly practically focused, and are a substantial improvement on the previous edition of the book - if you already have a copy of the 5th edition, I would suggest you consider upgrading ... If you plan to undertake serious educational research in your discipline, Research Methods in Education is an invaluable addition to your bookshelf.' - Bioscience Education, The Higher Education Academy

'This great book (in both senses) now reaches its sixth edition - and that marks real progress ... The strength of the book remains its highly detailed account of many research methods. This new edition sees that account taken yet further - with new contents of w-based research as well as on sampling, interviews and surveys, and extra on various other kinds of approach.' - British Journal of Educational Technology

'I believe 'Research Methods in Education' is a very impressive volume. Detailed, instructive,rigorous, engaging; graduate students as well as their professors will surely learn a lot from it' - International Journal of Research and Method in Education


This fully updated sixth edition of the international bestseller "Research Methods in Education" covers the whole range of methods currently employed by educational research at all stages. It is divided into five main parts: the context of educational research; planning educational research; styles of educational research; strategies for data collection and researching; and, data analysis. The book also contains references to a comprehensive dedicated website of accompanying materials. The sixth edition includes new material on: complexity theory, ethics, sampling and sensitive educational research, experimental research, questionnaire design and administration with practical guidance, qualitative and quantitative data analysis with practical examples on internet based research. "Research Methods in Education" is essential reading for the professional researcher and continues to be the standard text for students and lecturers in educational research.
