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…

Kulawiak, Pawel R.; Wilbert, Jürgen – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Sociometrically neglected children are not often liked and not often disliked by their peers. This kind of social information is known as social status. Evidence concerning internalizing behaviour of neglected children is as yet equivocal. Contradictory research results could possibly be attributed to methodological issues of social status…

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…

Boeren, Ellen – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
This paper explores the interdisciplinary nature of studies in the field of lifelong learning participation. Until recently, participation studies have been presented in a rather fragmented way, often drawing on insights from separate disciplines such as sociology or psychology. The complex nature of lifelong learning participation, however, urges…

Palmér, Hanna; Roos, Helena – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
The focus of this article is on the use of theories and on what we imply when we in research claim to use a theory. In this article, diverse uses of one theory will be illustrated with reference to 10 different studies. The aim is not to evaluate or judge how the theory is used in these studies, but to discuss how the diverse uses of one and the…

Blikstad-Balas, Marte – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Audio- and video-recordings are increasingly popular data sources in contemporary qualitative research, making discussions about methodological implications of such recordings timelier than ever. This article goes beyond discussing practical issues and issues of "camera effect" and reactivity to identify three major challenges of using…

Headley, Marcia Gail; Swoboda, Christopher M.; Foote, Lori – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
"What works" policies are the latest incarnation of best practices in educational research. Instituted by various organisations internationally, they define what kind of research counts as "evidence" for reform-oriented decision-making. While some countries rely on systematic analyses and meta-analyses, the U.S. favours primary…

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…
