SIG: Professors of Educational Research. Text Survey.
Kniefel, David R., Comp.; Dinham, Sarah M., Comp.
This annotated bibliography was developed from a survey of the Professors of Educational Research (PER), a special interest group within the American Educational Research Association, to gather faculty recommendations in a standard manner that would permit comparisons of texts within subject areas. Subject areas addressed are introduction to educational research, introductory and intermediate statistics, introductory and advanced measurement, and experimental design. Structured responses were solicited from PER members in terms of their recommendations on the following topics: (a) the eventual orientation (consumer, producer) and degree sought by the students using the text; (b) the level of quantitative and verbal ability required of students to use the text; (c) the organization of material as to its sufficiency in terms of sequence, variety, and detail; (d) the technical accuracy of the content and the level of scientific and mathematical language employed; and (e) perceptions of student reactions to the books. Respondents were also asked to list significant omissions and to make further relevant comments. (PD)
