Table of contents
-Tim Lewis, PhD, professor of special education and codirector, Center for Adolescent Research in Schools
"The expectations for the quality of educational research has risen dramatically over the past decade, and what defines high quality single case research has changed accordingly. With Single Case Research in Schools, Vannest, Davis, and Parker have provided a reference source for single case research that is both practical and user friendly, and yet still communicates the expectations for conducting rigorous single case research in educational settings. This text will be a valuable asset to students preparing to be educational researchers and to current researchers, as well as a means to inform school-based practitioners about research knowledge derived from single case research. It is a timely and practical publication."
-Michael L. Wehmeyer, PhD, professor, department of special education at Kansas University and director, Kansas University Center on Disability
"Single case research designs hold great promise for identifying and advancing practical educational strategies. Education is about the individual, and single case research focuses science on the impact of strategies to improve performance of individuals. Vannest, Parker and Davis describe how to design educational measures and use statistical procedures to better interpret single-case research designs. Their strong message is that the collection and use of data for decision-making is critical for on-going advances in education."
-Rob Horner, professor of special education, University of Oregon
