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…

Morrison, Dirk; Lichtenwald, Kristy; Tang, Rachel – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This exploratory research documents the use of the web conference technology WebEx™ to expand the variety of focus group data collection methods. Drawn from four synchronous online focus groups with older adults from across Canada, who create and use online personal learning networks to enhance and support their informal self-directed learning…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Mueller, Claude; Mildenberger, Thoralf; Lübcke, Maren – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Evidence-based research is becoming increasingly important in educational research. Calculation and test methods available in statistical software packages such as SPSS and STATA are widely used. To evaluate teaching innovations such as blended learning against classical classroom settings, for example, previous studies have mainly applied…

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…

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…

Kalpokaite, Neringa; Radivojevic, Ivana – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
In today's world of pervasive technology use, online education is rapidly growing. Online learning environments offer a multitude of benefits for both learners and teachers, as there are substantially more accessible and affordable. The present research focuses on teaching the use of qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) to researchers.…

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…
