The enduring nature of the problem of inequality in education suggests that new ways of understanding and ameliorating it are needed.

Kelly, Anthony – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
There has never been a published discursive review of equity measurement methodology in educational effectiveness research, though the literature on equity is growing.

Hsieh, Chueh-An; Maier, Kimberly S. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2009
The capacity of Bayesian methods in estimating complex statistical models is undeniable.

Smith, Emma – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2009
Secondary data analysis as a methodological approach is not without its critics. Indeed, three main objections to the use of secondary data analysis in social research stand out: first that because of the socially constructed nature of social data, the act of reducing it to a simple numeric form cannot fully encapsulate its complexity. Secondly,…
