Sources for Integrating Research Methodology and Statistics Instruction: An Annotated Bibliography.
Klass, Patricia Harrington; Michael, Noreen
The purpose of this paper was to provide professors of research methodology and statistics with an annotated bibliography of articles that can be used to teach a particular statistical technique as well as to illustrate specific concepts in research methodology. By using these articles in intermediate and advanced statistics classes, instructors can reinforce design concepts that students usually learn in earlier or previously taken methodology courses. Conversely, instructors of research methodology can use the articles to teach design issues as well as introduce statistics. Appendix A contains the annotated bibliography of articles sorted by statistical procedure. For each article, the first author's name, journal title, year of publication, volume number, pagination, and descriptive statistics are provided. The 71 articles are coded by major statistical procedure discussed, major design feature, noteworthy features, and difficulty level. Major statistical concepts discussed in the articles include, among others: (1) Chi square; (2) Pearson correlation; (3) t-tests; (4) one-way analysis of variance; (5) factor analysis; (6) regression; (7) discriminant analysis; (8) path analysis; and (9) analysis of covariance. Major designs reviewed are: (1) correlational; (2) pre-experimental; (3) quasiexperimental; (4) true experiment; (5) causal comparative/ex post facto; (6) descriptive; (7) meta analysis; (8) single subject; (9) qualitative; and (10) causal model. Appendix B contains the code sheet used to identify features of each article. (Author/SLD)
