Johnson, Martin; Coleman, Victoria – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
In this paper we outline the use of a concept mapping narrative method to elicit the complex and interconnected conceptualisations of specialized knowledge (assessment literacy) for a specific cohort of participants (teacher-examiners). In particular, we are interested in exploring how relational concept mapping and narrative interviews can be…

Byman, Reijo; Maaranen, Katriina; Kansanen, Pertti – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
From the end of the 1970s, all teacher education programmes have been a part of academic higher education in Finland. Thus, TE has been implemented in universities and all Finnish comprehensive and upper-secondary school teachers have a master's degree. Research methods courses have been an essential part of teacher education courses for over 40…

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.…

Rix, Jonathan; Garcia-Carrizosa, Helena; Hayhoe, Simon; Seale, Jane; Sheehy, Kieron – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
Authentic participation involving jointly undertaken analysis of data and dissemination of findings is rarely evident in participatory research involving disabled people. This paper examines analysis and dissemination which offers greater participation, providing a theoretical underpinning for this approach. This conceptualization arises from…

Fassbender, William J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
Education researchers have traditionally understood video as a useful tool for collecting and analyzing data in order to study a vast array of learning ecologies. However, video scholarship in fields outside of education, namely anthropology and sociology, have been able to put video to greater use by conducting studies that take advantage of the…

Prevett, Pauline S.; Black, Laura; Hernandez-Martinez, Paul; Pampaka, Maria; Williams, Julian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
A novel approach to integrating Cluster Analysis (CA) within qualitative inquiry is presented, grounded in a large, unstructured dataset from open and rather unstructured interviews. This dataset was previously subjected to typical (theory sensitive) thematic analyses. Transformed into quantitative binary matrix structures, the CA offers…

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…

Cassidy, Claire; Conrad, Sarah-Jane; de Figueiroa-Rego, Maria José – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Much has been written in recent years about research methods used when conducting research with and about children, with many approaches taking cognizance of the children's rights agenda. This article proposes adopting a philosophical approach, through Community of Philosophical Inquiry (CoPI), as a research method that pays attention to…

Ramlo, Susan E. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Within mixed methods research, a key issue is how to mix qualitative and quantitative research orientations. Similar debates arise within a mixed method called Q methodology [Q] that has an 80-year history and strong qualitative leanings. Q is often identified with the sorting of statements and the factor analysis (grouping) of people with similar…

Kent, Carmel; Rechavi, Amit – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Educational research suggests that interactivity is one of the most important tools for learning. This paper analyses the learning process in online communities by examining three types of interactions among learners: (1) interactions involving the active contribution of content ('digitally speaking'); (2) interactions involving the consumption of…

Arnold, Elizabeth G.; Burroughs, Elizabeth A.; Deshler, Jessica M. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Mathematics is a discipline that exists within a social context, a context that influences how the subject is taught and learned. Women's performance in mathematics has been shown to be vulnerable to stereotype threat, and psychologists have developed interventions aimed at reducing the effect of stereotype threat on women's mathematics…

Bessette, Harriet J.; Paris, Nita A. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
In this study, teachers explored their professional identities by reflecting on their teaching role(s) and contexts through elicitation of textual (written) metaphors and visual (drawn) metaphors of teaching. Participants created impromptu drawings emblematic of their conceptualized metaphor. Analysis of participants' written metaphors and…
