Focused on increasing the credibility of research and evaluation, the Fourth Edition of Donna M. Mertens’s comprehensive Research and Evaluation in Education and Psychology: Integrating Diversity with Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed Methods incorporates the viewpoints of various research paradigms into its descriptions of these methods. Providing specific advice on conducting research in culturally complex communities, the new edition has been updated to align with the American Psychological Association and the National Council of Accreditation of Teacher Education accreditation requirements. Approximately sixty percent of the content in the Fourth Edition is new, updated with numerous contemporary examples, making this book one of the most comprehensive, accessible, and practical methods books available. Praise for the previous edition: “The organization of the text reflects the author’s intent, philosophy, and objectives . . . [Mertens] clearly presents approaches, descriptions, and many examples useful in conducting studies; she is to be commended for the thoroughness of her work.” —Frank D. Adams, Wayne State College “Excellent descriptions, definitions, examples, and narrative about social science theory and the various paradigms. Mertens’ use [of] a wide variety of social identities to provide her examples makes the text inclusive of a variety of diverse identities. It is also useful to see the differences between [research and evaluation] and to select methods appropriate to the intention of the inquiry.” —Katrina L. Rodriguez, University of Northern Colorado

Focused on providing as full a picture as possible of what is considered to be "good" research, Research Methods in Education and Psychology explains quantitative and qualitative methods and incorporates the viewpoints of various research paradigms into the descriptions of these methods. It not only covers two of the standard paradigms (postpositivist and interpretive/constructivist) but also a relatively new emancipatory paradigm that is inclusive of the perspectives of feminists, ethnic/racial minorities, and persons with disabilities. In each chapter, Donna M. Mertens carefully explains a step of the research process from the literature review to types of research method to analysis and reporting of quantitative or qualitative approaches. As an added plus, she includes a sample study and abstract in each chapter to illustrate the concepts discussed in that chapter. To enhance your students reading, she has also included: - Chapter opening examples and lists of topics to consider - Boxed examples and points to consider - Sample studies in every chapter to illustrate key ideas - Sequence steps to guide each stage of the research process - End-of-chapter "Questions and Answers for Discussion and Application" to elicit further reflection of the material covered

Im Sinne forschungsmethodischer Triangulation und in Orientierung an Mixed-Model-Designs finden sich in der empirischen Bildungsforschung seit einigen Jahren vermehrt Studien, die eine Kombination qualitativer und quantitativer Instrumente und Analysen im Sinne eines gemeinsamen Forschungsansatzes realisieren. Vor diesem Hintergrund wurden im Rahmen der 74. Tagung der Arbeitsgruppe für Empirische Pädagogische Forschung (AEPF) 2010 in Jena zentrale methodologische Fragen und vielfältige empirische Studien präsentiert und diskutiert. Der vorliegende Band greift diese Diskussion auf und spannt einen exemplarischen Bogen von den forschungsmethodischen Grundlagen und Perspektiven bis hin zu konkreten Anwendungsbeispielen aus der empirischen Schul- und Unterrichtsforschung sowie der Lehrerbildungsforschung. Über den Autor: Michaela Gläser-Zikuda ist Professorin für Schulpädagogik und Allgemeine Didaktik an der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. Dr. Carsten Rohlfs ist Professor in Vertretung am Lehrstuhl für Schulpädagogik und Schulentwicklung am Institut für Erziehungswissenschaft der Fakultät für Sozial- und Verhaltenswissenschaften an der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena.
