Hall, James; Malmberg, Lars-Erik; Lindorff, Ariel; Baumann, Nicole; Sammons, Pam – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper presents a new methodological model termed Airbag Moderation: That the relationship between two variables varies as a function of a third, and that this third variable depends upon one of the others. Airbag Moderation extends and bridges a number of theories and it can be implemented using existing statistical models and software…

McChesney, Katrina; Aldridge, Jill – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
A recurring debate in mixed methods research involves the relationship between research methods and research paradigms. Whereas some scholars appear to assume that qualitative and quantitative research methods each necessarily belong with particular research paradigms, others have called for greater flexibility and have taken a variety of stances…

Cronenberg, Stephanie; Headley, Marcia Gail – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
A multiplicity of perspectives and methods are necessary to investigate the complexities of human development and educational institutions. However, many would-be MM researchers still have questions about how to conceptualize and conduct MM research. Taking a dialectic stance, or mixing research approaches to suit the demands of a research…

Khwaja, Tehmina; Mahoney, Kerrigan – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Research on new literacies and technology can be a challenging prospect for researchers due to the emerging nature of the subject. In this article, we present our experience using an innovative methodological technique that facilitated our narrative inquiry into the attitudes and perceptions of school leaders about media literacy. We provided our…

Costa, Cristina; Burke, Ciaran; Murphy, Mark – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Bourdieu's career long endeavour was to devise both theoretical and methodological tools that could apprehend and explain the social world and its mechanisms of cultural (re)production and related forms of domination. Amongst the several key concepts developed by Bourdieu, habitus has gained prominence as both a research lens and a research…

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…

Willis, Alison S. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This paper demonstrates that the phenomenographic methodology -- the study of variations of lived experience -- has the capacity to manage cultural and paradigmatic differences between researchers and participants in cross-cultural research. The process of cross-cultural research presented herein makes a contribution to the existing body of…

Kim, Sunha; Chang, Mido; Park, Jeehyun – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Survival analysis is an advanced statistical method to investigate the occurrence and the timing of an important event such as school access, dropout, and graduation in a longitudinal framework. The aim of our study is to provide practical guidelines for empirical researchers in choosing an appropriate survival analysis model. For this goal, this…

Knewstubb, Bernadette; Nicholas, Howard – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Numerous higher education researchers have studied the ways in which students' or academics' beliefs and conceptions affect their educational experiences and outcomes. However, studying the learning-teaching relationship has proved challenging, requiring researchers to simultaneously address both the invisible internal world(s) of the student and…

Green, Chris; Taylor, Celia; Buckley, Sharon; Hean, Sarah – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Whilst systematic reviews, meta-analyses and other forms of synthesis are considered amongst the most valuable forms of research evidence, their limited impact on educational policy and practice has been criticised. In this article, we analyse why systematic reviews do not benefit users of evidence more consistently and suggest how review teams…

Schweig, Jonathan David; Pane, John F. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Demands for scientific knowledge of what works in educational policy and practice has driven interest in quantitative investigations of educational outcomes, and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have proliferated under these conditions. In educational settings, even when individuals are randomized, both experimental and control students are…

Pampaka, Maria; Hutcheson, Graeme; Williams, Julian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Missing data is endemic in much educational research. However, practices such as step-wise regression common in the educational research literature have been shown to be dangerous when significant data are missing, and multiple imputation (MI) is generally recommended by statisticians. In this paper, we provide a review of these advances and their…

Baker-Doyle, Kira J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
Social network research on teachers and schools has risen exponentially in recent years as an innovative method to reveal the role of social networks in education. However, scholars are still exploring ways to incorporate traditional quantitative methods of Social Network Analysis (SNA) with qualitative approaches to social network research. This…

Delprato, Marcos; Sabates, Ricardo – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
This paper explores how factors operating at the state and community levels are associated with the prevalence of late school enrolment in Nigeria. We investigate the following three research themes. First, whether late entry varies across states and across communities and how much of this variation can be explained by the composition of…

Bai, Li; Hudson, Peter; Millwater, Jan; Tones, Megan – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2013
A 30-item survey was devised to determine Chinese TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) academics' potential for conducting research. A five-part Likert scale was used to gather data from 182 academics on four factors: (1) perceptions on teaching-research nexus, (2) personal perspectives for conducting research, (3) predispositions for…
