Research Methods in Education
This is a new edition of one of our best-selling textbooks. The authors have thoroughly updated the fourth edition and included more text on current developments in research practice, action research, developments in ICT, questionnaire design, ethnographic research, conducting needs analysis, constructing and using tests, observational methods, reliability and validity, ethical issues and curriculum research.
The entire text has been redesigned to cater for the increasingly sophisticated needs of the educational researcher. The new edition is more comprehensive, up-to-date and user-friendly, with increased accessibility. The authors, who are experienced teachers in the field, have produced a better written book (if that's possible) containing readable and realistic views of research and methodology, and show how to interpret the data.

Thorough reference book. Quite wordy but a must have for research methods. Read full review

Cohen describes the whole research metrology in social science. However, the book is too complicated with its counter arguments of positive and negative opinions of scholars. Yet, it is probably the most useful one to start doing research. Read full review
