Focused on the needs of the new classroom researcher, and those studying education on Masters-level courses, this is a thorough and thoughtful guide to the research process, covering qualitative, quantitative and mixed research methods. It guides you through research design, data collection and analysis and how to write up your research findings.

In The Press

I would thoroughly recommend this latest edition of an already comprehensive guide.  The breadth and depth of coverage are impressive and make this book invaluable reading for any education student planning to complete their research project within a school setting.  Of particular merit are the very accessible chapters on research paradigms, and the insightful new chapter on disseminating research, blogs and social media.
