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…

Dalland, Cecilie P.; Klette, Kirsti; Svenkerud, Sigrun – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The use of video recordings as a data source in qualitative research presents challenges when it comes to selecting time scales. Here, we discuss the implications of selecting time scales with regard to the interpretations and conclusions of a classroom event. The analysis draws on data from the PISA+ project, a large-scale video study of six…

Chew, Adrian W. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Various abductive research approaches have been foregrounded in the literature in recent years. This paper joins the literature on engaging with abductive research approaches, and proposes the term of 'informed guessing' as a way to think about enacting educational research abductively to allow new concepts, ideas and insights to come into being.…

Gomes, Cristiano Mauro Assis; Jelihovschi, Enio – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Regression Tree Method is not yet a mainstream method in Education, despite of being a traditional approach in Machine Learning. We advocate that this method should become mainstream in Education, since, in our point of view, it is the most suitable method to analyse complex datasets, very common in Education. This is, for example, the case of…

Beach, Pamela; McConnel, Jen – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Eye tracking methodology offers insights into human attention, decision-making processes, and user behaviours. In the context of teacher learning, data generated from eye-tracking technology has the potential to provide important information about teachers' behavioural patterns and cognitive processes that may or may not be occurring during…

Rapanta, Chrysi; Felton, Mark – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This integrative literature review takes up the ongoing discussion about the place of mixed methods designs in educational research. We focus on studies that investigate the role of argumentation in inquiry-based learning, either as a means for enhancing inquiry (argument-based inquiry) or as a learning outcome (inquiry-based argument). We argue…

Poth, Cheryl – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Educational research teams are increasingly recognized as an optimal configuration for addressing more complex mixed methods research problems; however, their development is often approached as a conventional research collaboration rather than an integrative one. An approach informed by complexity theory provides the practical guidance for…

In recent decades, educational policy researchers have considered critical policy sociology, mostly known as 'policy sociology', as a useful research methodology for analysing educational policies. However, despite its increasing popularity, policy sociology has been a confusing concept hence it is often used interchangeably with other terms such…

Rizvi, Sana – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This paper explores the contradictions of 'doing' feminist research, and how the materiality of engaging in fieldwork magnifies the gap between 'ideal' versus 'actual' feminist ways of conducting research. Drawing on my Doctoral research with British-Pakistani mothers of children with SEND, I explore the ethical and methodological challenges of…
