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…

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…

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…

Malmberg, Lars-Erik – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
With a growing interest in research on educational processes, there is a need to overview suitable latent variable models for students' learning experiences in real-time. This tutorial provides an introduction to intraindividual (multilevel) structural equation models (ISEM) for the analysis of process data (e.g. intensive longitudinal,…

Marcoulides, Katerina M.; Yuan, Ke-Hai – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Multilevel structural equation models (MSEM) are typically evaluated on the basis of goodness of fit indices. A problem with these indices is that they pertain to the entire model, reflecting simultaneously the degree of fit for all levels in the model. Consequently, in cases that lack model fit, it is unclear which level model is misspecified.…

Werler, Tobias Christoph; Baraldsnes, Dziuginta – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This paper explores the historic ideas and practice of outdoor education, as developed in Jean Jacques Rousseau's "Émile", and realized by Adolf Reichwein's rural teaching practice. We aimed at developing a comprehensive research design, triangulating different qualitative data (text and photos). In the paper, we explore how the idea of…

Martin, Andrew J.; Collie, Rebecca J.; Durksen, Tracy L.; Burns, Emma C.; Bostwick, Keiko C. P.; Tarbetsky, Ana L. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This review explores predictors and consequences of students' growth goals and growth mindset in school with particular emphasis on how correlational statistical methods can be applied to illuminate key issues and implications. Study 1 used cross-sectional data and employed structural equation modelling (SEM) to investigate the role of growth…

Gabriel, Florence; Signolet, Jason; Westwell, Martin – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Mathematics competency is fast becoming an essential requirement in ever greater parts of day-to-day work and life. Thus, creating strategies for improving mathematics learning in students is a major goal of education research. However, doing so requires an ability to look at many aspects of mathematics learning, such as demographics and…

Gorard, Stephen – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
This paper revisits the use of effect sizes in the analysis of experimental and similar results, and reminds readers of the relative advantages of the mean absolute deviation as a measure of variation, as opposed to the more complex standard deviation. The mean absolute deviation is easier to use and understand, and more tolerant of extreme…

Chong, Pei Wen; Graham, Linda J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2013
International comparison is complicated by the use of different terms, classification methods, policy frameworks and system structures, not to mention different languages and terminology. Multi-case studies can assist in the understanding of the influence wielded by cultural, social, economic, historical and political forces upon educational…

Arens, A. Katrin; Yeung, Alexander Seeshing; Craven, Rhonda G.; Hasselhorn, Marcus – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2013
This study aims to develop a short German version of the Self Description Questionnaire (SDQ I-GS) in order to present a robust economical instrument for measuring German preadolescents' multidimensional self-concept. A full German version of the SDQ I (SDQ I-G) that maintained the original structure and thus length of the English original SDQ I…

McLaren, Ingrid Ann Marie – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2012
This paper describes a study which uses quantitative and qualitative methods in determining the relationship between academic, institutional and psychological variables and degree performance for a sample of Jamaican undergraduate students. Quantitative methods, traditionally associated with the positivist paradigm, and involving the counting and…

Hampden-Thompson, Gillian; Lubben, Fred; Bennett, Judith – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2011
Quantitative secondary analysis of large-scale data can be combined with in-depth qualitative methods. In this paper, we discuss the role of this combined methods approach in examining the uptake of physics and chemistry in post compulsory schooling for students in England. The secondary data analysis of the National Pupil Database (NPD) served…

Papanastasiou, Elena C.; Zembylas, Michalinos – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2008
The study reported in this article examines the nature of anxiety that undergraduate students experience in a research methods course and explores some of the factors that influence their anxiety levels. Two questionnaires measuring the attitudes towards research and the anxiety level were administered to 472 students enrolled in a research…
