The Overuse of Self-Report in the Study of Beliefs in Education: Epistemological Considerations
Gaete, Alfredo; Gómez, Viviana; Benavides, Pelayo
International Journal of Research & Method in Education, v41 n3 p241-256 2018
The last few decades abound in studies concerned with what teachers, students, parents, and other participants in the educational process believe about a wide variety of issues. Most of these studies follow methodological procedures based on reports that people make about their own beliefs. We argue that this strategy is seriously flawed under certain conditions that often obtain and, therefore, we should revise what we know so far about people's beliefs. We also suggest a more suitable alternative procedure.
