Dieumegard, Gilles; de Vries, Erica; Perrin, Nicolas – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This paper aims at examining the use of a theoretical and methodological framework originating in ergonomics, the 'course-of-action method', in the study of individual learning processes in naturally occurring situations. This framework investigates the course of lived experience of each individual. Thus, in addition, to her/his thinking, it…

Guldberg, Karen; Achtypi, Alexia; D'Alonzo, Luigi; Laskaridou, Katerina; Milton, Damian; Molteni, Paola; Wood, Rebecca – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
Although theories around Communities of Practice have gained significant ground in recent years and have become an important focus for organizational development, there is a gap in studies that investigate what members gain from participation in these communities. This paper explains how the value creation framework was implemented in a…

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…

Sakata, Nozomi; Oketch, Moses; Candappa, Mano – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This paper offers a critical analysis of the Comparative Case Study (CCS). While CCS provides a holistic methodological framework for case-based research, it is not free from drawbacks. One criticism the approach may receive, ironically, is the lack of criticism it encounters. Another critique can include its naming, as the name 'comparative case…

Petersson, Jöran; Sayers, Judy; Rosenqvist, Eva; Andrews, Paul – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
The analysis of the content of school textbooks, particularly in a time of cross-cultural borrowing, is a growing field restricted by the tools currently available. In this paper, drawing on the analyses of three English year-one mathematics textbooks, we show how two approaches to the analysis of sequential data not only supplement conventional…

O' Keeffe, Suzanne; Skerritt, Craig – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This paper explores poststructural tools as a particularly helpful ontological stance in advancing the concerns of marginalized groups in educational research. Although largely academic in nature, poststructuralism has had real and tangible effects as it interrogates everyday binaries, categories and hierarchies that oppress so many. This paper…

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…

Kyriakides, Leonidas; Charalambous, Evi – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper refers to whole school interventions aiming to promote student learning outcomes through improving the functioning of school factors. Evaluation studies of these interventions mainly measure their impact on student learning outcomes. This paper argues for the importance of studying the mechanisms of whole school interventions through…

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…
