Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The completely rewritten and updated fifth edition of the long-running bestseller Research Methods in Education covers the whole range of methods currently employed by educational researches. It provides both the theory that underpins research methodology and very detailed and practical guidelines for conducting educational research at all stages. It continues to be the standard text for students undertaking educational research whether at undergraduate of postgraduate level.

This fifth edition constitutes the most extensive reshaping of the text to date and new material includes:

New chapters on curriculum research, planning research, needs analysis, observational methods and test construction planning research Expanded discussion of action research, questionnaire design, ethnographic research, interview techniques, document analysis, ethical issues and group analysis/group techniques New developments in technology such as telephone and electronic surveys, video and audio recording, use of photographic data and the use of the internet as a research facility.

Research Methods in Education, fifth edition, is essential reading for both the professional researcher and the user of research.

Louis Cohen is Emeritus Professor of Education at Loughborough University. Lawrence Manion is former Principal Lecturer in Music at Didsbury School of education, Manchester Metroplitan University. Keith Morrison is Professor of education at the Inter-University Institute of Macau and formerly Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Durham.
