Methods for the "Research Challenged."
Poel, Christopher Jon; Homan, Robert M.
Language teachers with little or no experience in conducting research are guided through the process of deciding what kind of classroom research to undertake, and how to organize and implement it. In question-and-answer format, four types of research are defined and explained separately: action, survey, correlational, and experimental studies. For each, an answer is provided to the questions: What is it? When do I do it? How do I set it up? How do I analyze the results? and Where do I go from here? Discussion addresses the characteristics, intended use, appropriate context, advantages and disadvantages, organization, type of data obtained, interpretation of results, and adjustments that can be made in the design.
