Singh, Akansha; Uwimpuhwe, Germaine; Li, Mengchu; Einbeck, Jochen; Higgins, Steve; Kasim, Adetayo – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2022
In education, multisite trials involve randomization of pupils into intervention and comparison groups within schools. Most analytical models in multisite educational trials ignore that the impact of an intervention may be school dependent. This study investigates the impact of statistical models on the uncertainty associated with an effect size…

Mariguddi, Anna – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2022
The purpose of this article is to explore the pitfalls and benefits experienced whilst implementing elements of a co-research approach with teachers during a three-year research project which sought to explore perceptions of informal learning in secondary music education. The co-research methodological approach was adopted due to (a) the perceived…

Tawell, Alice; McCluskey, Gillean – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2022
This paper examines and compares national policies on school exclusion, using a specific framework for public policy analysis developed by Carol Bacchi [(2009). Analysing policy: What's the problem represented to be? Frenchs Forest: Pearson]. This framework is known as 'What's the problem represented to be?' or 'WPR'. Bacchi's framework has been…

Bokhove, Christian; Sims, Sam – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
Many national education systems incorporate a central inspectorate tasked with visiting, evaluating and reporting on the performance of schools. The judgements produced by inspectors often play a part in the way that schools are held to account and constitute an important source of data in their own right. Inspection reports are therefore of great…

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…

Uwimpuhwe, Germaine; Singh, Akansha; Higgins, Steve; Kasim, Adetayo – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
Educational researchers advocate the use of an effect size and its confidence interval to assess the effectiveness of interventions instead of relying on a p-value, which has been blamed for lack of reproducibility of research findings and the misuse of statistics. The aim of this study is to provide a framework, which can provide direct evidence…

Thomson, Stephanie; Pampaka, Maria – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
In this paper, we approach modelling mathematics dispositions from a different methodological perspective in order to shed more light into the complex interplay between teaching practices and students' learning outcomes. We draw on survey data from around 5000 students from Year 7-11 (age 11-16) from 40 Secondary schools in England. Our…

Gripton, Catherine; Vincent, Kerry – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
The importance of children's perspectives is now well-established and there has been much attention afforded to appropriate methods for listening to children within the research. Whilst language-based research methods, such as interview, remain commonplace, children's representations are increasingly included as data in educational research.…

Guihen, Laura – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper offers an autoethnographic account of using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) as a doctoral researcher to explore the career experiences of women deputy headteachers. IPA is a qualitative methodology which lends itself to a detailed exploration of the ways in which individuals make sense of their lived experiences. Despite…

Wilson, Suzanne – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Conducting research with under-represented, overlooked and service resistant groups poses challenges but can lead to valuable discoveries that inform the development of policy or practice. In this paper, a reflective account of a community-based methodology will be provided which targeted families in poverty who did not engage with the school…

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…

Norwich, Brahm; Koutsouris, George – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper describes the context, processes and issues experienced over 5 years in which a RCT was carried out to evaluate a programme for children aged 7-8 who were struggling with their reading. Its specific aim is to illuminate questions about the design of complex teaching approaches and their evaluation using an RCT. This covers the early…

Harrison, Michaela J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Primarily methodological in its orientation, this paper offers a presentation of 'research outcomes' in ways that challenge and disrupt commonplace notions of data and analysis. In an attempt to write against the grain of conventional qualitative research practice and to experiment with alternative encounters with data and analysis, I present…

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…

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…
