Methods of Research in Physical Education.
Thorpe, Jo Anne L.
Practicality is the hallmark of this physical education research manual. It focuses on applications with which investigators in this field typically are concerned; numerous examples clarify these points. All phases of research are covered, beginning with writing mechanics and style and a blueprint of the chapters that comprise the creditable report. A practical introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics follows, as does a guide to the range of data gathering techniques and research designs. The text specifically applies these various approaches to research in physical education. This manual also illuminates the bases for criticism and shows how to prepare abstracts, oral reports and prospectuses. Complementing this material are appendices concerned with tables, bibliographical aids, visual aids, scales, and the use of computers in research. (JD)
