McCusker, Sean – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper explores the theoretical underpinning of the LEGO® Serious Play® methodology and highlights the affordances of the method in the context of eliciting thoughts and views within groups made up of a range of stakeholders. It provides insight into how LEGO® Serious Play® can be integrated into discursive research practices amongst…

Chew, Adrian W. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Various abductive research approaches have been foregrounded in the literature in recent years. This paper joins the literature on engaging with abductive research approaches, and proposes the term of 'informed guessing' as a way to think about enacting educational research abductively to allow new concepts, ideas and insights to come into being.…

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…

Gomes, Cristiano Mauro Assis; Jelihovschi, Enio – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Regression Tree Method is not yet a mainstream method in Education, despite of being a traditional approach in Machine Learning. We advocate that this method should become mainstream in Education, since, in our point of view, it is the most suitable method to analyse complex datasets, very common in Education. This is, for example, the case of…

Sikes, Pat; Hall, Mel – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Auto/biographical narrative research that touches on 'sensitive' areas can elicit accounts that researchers may find distressing and threatening to their emotional and psychological health. In this paper we offer a 'confessional tale' through which we consider our experiences of investigating a sensitive and painful topic from the perspectives of…

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…

Parmaxi, Antigoni; Zaphiris, Panayiotis – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper describes aspirations and contributions that grew out of a developmental cycle of design-based research (DBR) implementation conducted over a three-year project. DBR engineers new learning environments and improves learning in context whilst communicating usable knowledge for learning and teaching in complex settings. This project…

Molla, Tebeje; Nolan, Andrea – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The primary purpose of this paper is to illustrate how a critical realist approach can add to our understanding of professional recognition of educators in a pre-school setting. Recognition is a function of personal achievement and social arrangement, and is understood through examining those subjective conditions and objective structures as…

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…

Mueller, Claude; Mildenberger, Thoralf; Lübcke, Maren – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Evidence-based research is becoming increasingly important in educational research. Calculation and test methods available in statistical software packages such as SPSS and STATA are widely used. To evaluate teaching innovations such as blended learning against classical classroom settings, for example, previous studies have mainly applied…

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…

Thien, Lei Mee – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This study aims to assess the quality of school life as a second-order formative construct and provide empirical evidence for its measurement model. Data were collected from 1459 Malaysian Grade Five pupils. A partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) approach was used for data analysis. Findings supported that six reflective…

Kalpokaite, Neringa; Radivojevic, Ivana – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
In today's world of pervasive technology use, online education is rapidly growing. Online learning environments offer a multitude of benefits for both learners and teachers, as there are substantially more accessible and affordable. The present research focuses on teaching the use of qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) to researchers.…

Schermer, Maike; Fosker, Tim – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Arguably one of the most valuable tools for investigating pupil behaviour in an educational environment is systematic classroom observation. Classroom observation is often cited as having the potential to enable research of the learning process in action. Low inference classroom observation instruments are designed to record a sequence of data…

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…
