Xerri, Daniel – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Interviews in qualitative research may sometimes employ stimulus material as a means of eliciting richer data. However, scant consideration has been given to the use of poetry for this purpose, especially within the field of poetry education research. This article seeks to address the gap in the literature by illustrating how the use of poetry as…

Garnet, Dustin – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
In the pursuit of my doctoral research on the institutional history of the art department at Central Technical School (CTS) in Toronto, Canada, I amassed a collection of oral histories from 20 current and former CTS art instructors and students, recorded across the country. As an instructor in the CTS art department in addition to being its…

Hordósy, Rita – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
This paper analyses how three European countries produce and use data within a specific educational policy field, that of school leaving and graduation. It compares how stakeholders in England, Finland and the Netherlands know what happens to the leavers from schools and universities. Through gathering evidence about the methodological…

Quartermaine, Angela – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
In recent years, counter-terrorism measures have become incorporated into the UK education system, with the latest 2015 "Counter-Terrorism and Security Act" expanding on previous government policy by making it mandatory for schools to be actively involved with counter-terrorism measures [Clause 21, H.M. Government 2015.…

Elliot, Dely Lazarte; Reid, Kate; Baumfield, Vivienne – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Despite the exponential growth of visual research in the social sciences in the last three decades, continuing empirical enquiries are arguably more relevant than ever. Earlier research employed visual methods primarily to investigate distinct cultural practices, often seeking the views of marginalized, challenging or hard-to-reach participants.…

Nguyen, Nga Thanh; Tangen, Donna – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
This paper examines incorporating video-stimulated recall (VSR) as a data collection technique in cross-cultural research. With VSR, participants are invited to watch video-recordings of particular events that they are involved in; they then recall their thoughts in relation to their observations of their behaviour in relation to the event. The…

Johnson, Martin – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
This paper uses the remote interactions of professional examiners working for a UK-based awarding body as a vehicle for discussing the benefits of the use of different methods for analysing such discourse. Communication is an area of interest for sociocultural theory because it can potentiate cognitive shifts in participants and affords learning.…

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…

Wright, Daniel B. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Many education policies require estimating whether students in different grades are on track for achieving certain educational standards. One approach for constructing these cut scores is to estimate the values on tests that predict reaching targets on subsequent tests. Whether a student is deemed on target can affect the student's course…

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…

Sopromadze, Natia; Moorosi, Pontso – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
The paper aims to demonstrate the value of cognitive interviewing (CI) as a survey pretesting method in comparative education research. Although rarely used by education researchers, CI has been successfully applied in different disciplines to evaluate and improve question performance. The method assumes that observing people's thought processes…

Hansen, Michael – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Citations have a central role in the dynamic process of knowledge development and as measures of research performance--yet little is known about their role in educational research or the qualities they are assumed to measure. Based on a citation context analysis, this study shows how a paradigmatic reference within classroom research has been used…

Lewkowich, David – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
In this article, I suggest that, when readers speak about reading, the language they use is closely related to the modes and movements of speech employed by the dreamer recounting their dream. With reference to the psychoanalytic formulations of unconscious desire and transferential attachment, this article--with its focus on…

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…

Bai, Haiyan; Sivo, Stephen A.; Pan, Wei; Fan, Xitao – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Among the commonly used resampling methods of dealing with small-sample problems, the bootstrap enjoys the widest applications because it often outperforms its counterparts. However, the bootstrap still has limitations when its operations are contemplated. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine an alternative, new resampling method…
