Educational Research: Competencies for Analysis and Applications, 12th Edition
Mills, Geoffrey E.; Gay, L. R.
A comprehensive, accessible introduction to educational research "Educational Research: Competencies for Analysis and Applications" uses engaging, straightforward language to introduce students to the information and skills required to successfully conduct research and to competently evaluate research. Long known for their clear and at times humorous writing, the authors are accessible and thoughtful guides for readers who are being introduced for the first time to a field that many of them might find initially intimidating. The text provides a total instructional system that lays out clear learning targets and then supports students as they practice and develop expertise in both doing and reading research. The 12th Edition includes a new, separate chapter on ethics, expands its coverage of single-subject research, covers the latest digital strategies and tools for doing research, and introduces students to the open source statistics software R.
