Hinojosa-Pareja, Eva Francisca; Gutiérrez-Santiuste, Elba; Gámiz-Sánchez, Vanesa – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
The e-portfolio is a tool increasingly used in Higher Education due to the benefits it holds, especially with regards to facilitating processes of evaluation and reflective learning. The main goal of this study was the construction of a questionnaire to analyse EP use in a Spanish University and to ensure its reliability and validity for use…

Frans, Niek; Post, Wendy; Oenema-Mostert, Ineke; Minnaert, Alexander – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
Stability is an important underlying assumption in any form of assessment-supported decision-making. Since early years development is frequently described as unstable, the concept plays a central role in the discussion surrounding early years assessment. This paper describes stability as a set of assumptions about the way individual scores change…

Molla, Tebeje; Nolan, Andrea – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The primary purpose of this paper is to illustrate how a critical realist approach can add to our understanding of professional recognition of educators in a pre-school setting. Recognition is a function of personal achievement and social arrangement, and is understood through examining those subjective conditions and objective structures as…

Outhwaite, Laura A.; Gulliford, Anthea; Pitchford, Nicola J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Randomized control trials (RCTs) are commonly regarded as the 'gold standard' for evaluating educational interventions. While this experimental design is valuable in establishing causal relationships between the tested intervention and outcomes, reliance on statistical aggregation typically underplays the situated context in which interventions…

Pakarinen, Eija; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; von Suchodoletz, Antje – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The present study aimed to investigate the associations between teachers' observed emotional support and social competence among Finnish pre-schoolers (6-year-olds). The quality of emotional support was observed using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System Pre-K in 47 preschool classrooms twice across the preschool year. Teachers rated children's…

Lam, Ho Cheong – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Phenomenography is internationally well-known for its use in studying learning and teaching in educational settings. This paper begins with the discussion of two approaches reported in the literature to study classroom teaching in the phenomenography tradition. The paper goes on to put forward a third approach that is in essence to return to the…

Fleer, Marilyn; Hedges, Helen; Fleer-Stout, Freya; Bich Hanh, Le Thi – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Researching quality in early childhood settings has been operationalized in many ways, within and across countries. Nevertheless, despite some consensus on what might constitute a universally recognized view of what is considered essential for young children's development, there are strong indicators that locally developed assessment tools are…

Nicholas, Maria – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This paper explores the affordances of using video-based research to capture a multiplicity of events, along with multimodal representations when producing data related to adult-child book readings. In doing this we answer two questions: (1) why more than one event is needed when seeking a comprehensive collection of information for the purpose of…

Nolan, Andrea; Paatsch, Louise; Scull, Janet – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Using video as a mode of data generation in research involving young children and their teachers has become a more common practice in educational research. Digital video recordings provide the opportunity to capture the complexity of interactions that occur between people, time, space and objects, however, working with this methodology and form of…

Schweig, Jonathan David; Pane, John F. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Demands for scientific knowledge of what works in educational policy and practice has driven interest in quantitative investigations of educational outcomes, and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have proliferated under these conditions. In educational settings, even when individuals are randomized, both experimental and control students are…

Hammes, Patricia Simone; Bigras, Marc; Crepaldi, Maria Aparecida – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
We tested the criterion-related validity and potential bias of two measures of pupils' academic achievement: the Teacher Rating Scale (TRS) and the Mathematics and Literacy Achievement Tests (MLTs). These measures are representative of assessment methods largely used in the elementary school. The aims were: (1) to verify the extent to which TRS…

Cumming, Tamara – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
Growing numbers of educational researchers are using rhizoanalytic approaches based on the work of Deleuze and Guattari to think differently in their research practices. However, as those engaging in debates about post-qualitative research suggest, thinking differently is not without its challenges. This paper uses three complex challenges…

Ngware, Moses Waithanji; Abuya, Benta; Oketch, Moses; Admassu, Kassahun; Mutisya, Maurice; Musyoka, Peter – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
This paper presents the experiences and lessons learnt during the design and implementation of the randomized impact evaluation (IE) of a reading to learn (RtL) intervention in early primary grades. The study was to assess the impact of RtL on literacy and numeracy among pupils in low-performing districts in East Africa. The intervention was…

Sun, Shuyan; Pan, Wei – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2014
As applications of multilevel modelling in educational research increase, researchers realize that multilevel data collected in many educational settings are often not purely nested. The most common multilevel non-nested data structure is one that involves student mobility in longitudinal studies. This article provides a methodological review of…

Barron, Ian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2013
This article revisits the critical realist ethnographic process that was adopted in my doctoral thesis, which was concerned with the experiences of ethnic identity of white British and Pakistani British children as they started kindergarten in the northwest of England. The article focuses on the ethnography that emerged from the visits that I…
