Shafi, Adeela ahmed – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Young offenders' perceptions of their educational experiences are little researched not least because of methodological and ethical challenges. These include being difficult to access, questions on their reliability as interviewees and their 'doubly vulnerable' position, due to the secure locked context and their age. This article draws on…

Dalland, Cecilie P.; Klette, Kirsti; Svenkerud, Sigrun – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The use of video recordings as a data source in qualitative research presents challenges when it comes to selecting time scales. Here, we discuss the implications of selecting time scales with regard to the interpretations and conclusions of a classroom event. The analysis draws on data from the PISA+ project, a large-scale video study of six…

Cassidy, Claire; Conrad, Sarah-Jane; de Figueiroa-Rego, Maria José – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Much has been written in recent years about research methods used when conducting research with and about children, with many approaches taking cognizance of the children's rights agenda. This article proposes adopting a philosophical approach, through Community of Philosophical Inquiry (CoPI), as a research method that pays attention to…

Ramlo, Susan E. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Within mixed methods research, a key issue is how to mix qualitative and quantitative research orientations. Similar debates arise within a mixed method called Q methodology [Q] that has an 80-year history and strong qualitative leanings. Q is often identified with the sorting of statements and the factor analysis (grouping) of people with similar…

Kent, Carmel; Rechavi, Amit – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Educational research suggests that interactivity is one of the most important tools for learning. This paper analyses the learning process in online communities by examining three types of interactions among learners: (1) interactions involving the active contribution of content ('digitally speaking'); (2) interactions involving the consumption of…

Arnold, Elizabeth G.; Burroughs, Elizabeth A.; Deshler, Jessica M. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Mathematics is a discipline that exists within a social context, a context that influences how the subject is taught and learned. Women's performance in mathematics has been shown to be vulnerable to stereotype threat, and psychologists have developed interventions aimed at reducing the effect of stereotype threat on women's mathematics…

Bessette, Harriet J.; Paris, Nita A. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
In this study, teachers explored their professional identities by reflecting on their teaching role(s) and contexts through elicitation of textual (written) metaphors and visual (drawn) metaphors of teaching. Participants created impromptu drawings emblematic of their conceptualized metaphor. Analysis of participants' written metaphors and…

McCusker, Sean – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper explores the theoretical underpinning of the LEGO® Serious Play® methodology and highlights the affordances of the method in the context of eliciting thoughts and views within groups made up of a range of stakeholders. It provides insight into how LEGO® Serious Play® can be integrated into discursive research practices amongst…

Chew, Adrian W. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Various abductive research approaches have been foregrounded in the literature in recent years. This paper joins the literature on engaging with abductive research approaches, and proposes the term of 'informed guessing' as a way to think about enacting educational research abductively to allow new concepts, ideas and insights to come into being.…

Kulawiak, Pawel R.; Wilbert, Jürgen – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Sociometrically neglected children are not often liked and not often disliked by their peers. This kind of social information is known as social status. Evidence concerning internalizing behaviour of neglected children is as yet equivocal. Contradictory research results could possibly be attributed to methodological issues of social status…

Gomes, Cristiano Mauro Assis; Jelihovschi, Enio – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Regression Tree Method is not yet a mainstream method in Education, despite of being a traditional approach in Machine Learning. We advocate that this method should become mainstream in Education, since, in our point of view, it is the most suitable method to analyse complex datasets, very common in Education. This is, for example, the case of…

Sikes, Pat; Hall, Mel – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Auto/biographical narrative research that touches on 'sensitive' areas can elicit accounts that researchers may find distressing and threatening to their emotional and psychological health. In this paper we offer a 'confessional tale' through which we consider our experiences of investigating a sensitive and painful topic from the perspectives of…

Norwich, Brahm; Koutsouris, George – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper describes the context, processes and issues experienced over 5 years in which a RCT was carried out to evaluate a programme for children aged 7-8 who were struggling with their reading. Its specific aim is to illuminate questions about the design of complex teaching approaches and their evaluation using an RCT. This covers the early…

Parmaxi, Antigoni; Zaphiris, Panayiotis – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper describes aspirations and contributions that grew out of a developmental cycle of design-based research (DBR) implementation conducted over a three-year project. DBR engineers new learning environments and improves learning in context whilst communicating usable knowledge for learning and teaching in complex settings. This project…
