Researching Students with Disabilities: The Importance of Critical Perspectives
Vaccaro, Annemarie; Kimball, Ezekiel W.; Wells, Ryan S.; Ostiguy, Benjamin J.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n163 p25-41 2014
In this chapter, the authors critically review the current state of quantitative research on college students with disabilities and examine the exclusion of this marginalized population from much of our research. They propose ways to conduct research that more fully accounts for this diverse and important college population. The authors argue that critical quantitative research will produce more thorough knowledge and, in turn, policies and practices that will lead to more equitable college outcomes for students with disabilities.
