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…

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…
