Does Higher Education Research Need Revisions?
Keller, George
Review of Higher Education, v21 n3 p267-78 Spr 1998
Examines quantitative studies, especially small-scale statistical probes, which have become the dominant mode of inquiry in higher education, but criticisms of this approach are mounting. Describes the presuppositions of this prevailing mode, and several strands of criticism, noting how education and social research have changed over four decades. Offers suggestions for improving higher education research. (Author/MSE)
