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…

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…

Thien, Lei Mee – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This study aims to assess the quality of school life as a second-order formative construct and provide empirical evidence for its measurement model. Data were collected from 1459 Malaysian Grade Five pupils. A partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) approach was used for data analysis. Findings supported that six reflective…

Schermer, Maike; Fosker, Tim – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Arguably one of the most valuable tools for investigating pupil behaviour in an educational environment is systematic classroom observation. Classroom observation is often cited as having the potential to enable research of the learning process in action. Low inference classroom observation instruments are designed to record a sequence of data…

Xu, Lihua; Widjaja, Wanty; Ferguson, Joseph – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Digital video technology has been increasingly employed to investigate teacher professional noticing. While extensive research has been undertaken to explore the specialised knowledge base underlying teacher professional noticing, there is a need to more closely examine the methodological consequences of video-based approaches for understanding…

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…

Khwaja, Tehmina; Mahoney, Kerrigan – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Research on new literacies and technology can be a challenging prospect for researchers due to the emerging nature of the subject. In this article, we present our experience using an innovative methodological technique that facilitated our narrative inquiry into the attitudes and perceptions of school leaders about media literacy. We provided our…

Falloon, Garry – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Criticisms have been levelled at e-research that limited knowledge has been produced helpful for guiding educators in using digital tools more effectively for teaching and learning. This issue has become more acute with the emergence of mobile devices that enable learners to transition across different learning spaces and times. Traditional data…

Bulut, Okan; Lei, Ming; Guo, Qi – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Item positions in educational assessments are often randomized across students to prevent cheating. However, if altering item positions results in any significant impact on students' performance, it may threaten the validity of test scores. Two widely used approaches for detecting position effects -- logistic regression and hierarchical…

Brown, Gavin T. L.; Harris, Lois R.; O'Quin, Chrissie; Lane, Kenneth E. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Multi-group confirmatory factor analysis (MGCFA) allows researchers to determine whether a research inventory elicits similar response patterns across samples. If statistical equivalence in responding is found, then scale score comparisons become possible and samples can be said to be from the same population. This paper illustrates the use of…

Ng, Betsy; Wang, C. K. John; Liu, W. C. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
The motivated strategies for learning questionnaire (MSLQ) is widely used as a self-report instrument to assess students' motivation and self-regulation. This study utilized the MSLQ Junior High to examine the motivational beliefs and self-regulation of secondary school students (Grades 8 and 9) from Singapore. The instrument was slightly modified…

Hewitt, Elizabeth – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
The article is a reflection on the use of an oral diary as a qualitative research tool, the role that it played during fieldwork and the methodological issues that emerged. It draws on a small-scale empirical study into primary school teachers' use of group discussion, during which oral diaries were used to explore and document teacher reflective…

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…

Petridou, Alexandra; Karagiorgi, Yiasemina – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Since school failure has detrimental effects on students and on society, education policy needs to address students "at risk," and support them to reach their potential. This study used data from the longitudinal national Programme for Functional Literacy (PfL) conducted in Cyprus to identify students "at risk" and aimed to…

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…
