    This book is the only introductory educational research text to offer a truly balanced and integrated treatment of both quantitative and qualitative methods. Written in clear and practical language, "Educational Research" will help its readers get started doing their own research and will also help them become better readers of research.

The feature summarizes an ethical issue related to the chapter content that comes up in the research of professionals. Each Ethical Dilemma ends by posing a discussion question to the reader. The majority of the sample articles have been replaced with more recent articles. All of the annotations and other associated text has been rewritten accordingly. New Chapter 1 The Process and Approaches of Research further integrates the treatment of quantitative and qualitative methods. Additional coverage of how to find a research problem (Chapter 2)Additional information on the difference between dissertation, thesis, and journal article writing strategies (Chapter 3)Updated information on statistical programs and simulation programs for learning statistics (Chapter 8)information on the relationship between response rate and response bias (Chapter 12)
