Burns, Emma C.; Martin, Andrew J.; Collie, Rebecca J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Stage-environment fit theory posits that the interpersonal dynamics and structural (i.e. school-level) resources afforded by a student's academic environment can either support or thwart student thriving (e.g. achievement). Thus, it is important to examine how these factors impact student achievement at the student- and school-level. This…

Kyriakides, Leonidas; Charalambous, Evi – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper refers to whole school interventions aiming to promote student learning outcomes through improving the functioning of school factors. Evaluation studies of these interventions mainly measure their impact on student learning outcomes. This paper argues for the importance of studying the mechanisms of whole school interventions through…

Pakarinen, Eija; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; von Suchodoletz, Antje – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The present study aimed to investigate the associations between teachers' observed emotional support and social competence among Finnish pre-schoolers (6-year-olds). The quality of emotional support was observed using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System Pre-K in 47 preschool classrooms twice across the preschool year. Teachers rated children's…

Malmberg, Lars-Erik – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
With a growing interest in research on educational processes, there is a need to overview suitable latent variable models for students' learning experiences in real-time. This tutorial provides an introduction to intraindividual (multilevel) structural equation models (ISEM) for the analysis of process data (e.g. intensive longitudinal,…

Marcoulides, Katerina M.; Yuan, Ke-Hai – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Multilevel structural equation models (MSEM) are typically evaluated on the basis of goodness of fit indices. A problem with these indices is that they pertain to the entire model, reflecting simultaneously the degree of fit for all levels in the model. Consequently, in cases that lack model fit, it is unclear which level model is misspecified.…

Bardach, Lisa; Yanagida, Takuya; Lüftenegger, Marko – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
The present article focuses on classroom climate effects in the context of multi-level structural equation modelling. We first discuss the need to appropriately model classroom climate as a classroom-level construct. We then analyse the effects of classroom climate (academic goal structures and social goal structures) on students' motivation in…

Martin, David; Jamieson-Proctor, Romina – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
In Australia, one of the key findings of the Teacher Education Ministerial Advisory Group was that not all graduating pre-service teachers possess adequate pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) to teach effectively. The concern is that higher education providers working with pre-service teachers are using pedagogical practices and assessments which…

Guihen, Laura – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This paper offers an autoethnographic account of using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) as a doctoral researcher to explore the career experiences of women deputy headteachers. IPA is a qualitative methodology which lends itself to a detailed exploration of the ways in which individuals make sense of their lived experiences. Despite…

Wilson, Suzanne – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Conducting research with under-represented, overlooked and service resistant groups poses challenges but can lead to valuable discoveries that inform the development of policy or practice. In this paper, a reflective account of a community-based methodology will be provided which targeted families in poverty who did not engage with the school…

Koomen, Marten – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
This article addresses Habermas' method of "rational reconstruction" in the context of the competing approaches of "postmodernism" and "neoliberalism." Habermas' tradition is differentiated from others through its focus on intersubjectivity and universal principles. Rational reconstruction provides a basis for…

Skilling, Karen; Stylianides, Gabriel J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
In this paper, we investigate using vignettes in educational research, particularly for eliciting value-laden constructs such as teacher beliefs and understandings and how these influence teacher practices. Drawing on research where vignettes have been used as the central instrument for data collection, we argue that methodological consistency is…

Ross, Karen; Call-Cummings, Meagan – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Across our combined 15 years of experience as methodologists and research methodology instructors, we have found that the concept of 'failure' is only a small portion of methodological literature and is similarly missing from scholarship on teaching and learning social science research methodology. We define failure in terms of our inability as…

Wallin, Anna; Koro-Ljungberg, Mirka; Eskola, Jari – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This paper focuses on the processes of the method of empathy-based stories (MEBS) and illustrates the ways in which MEBS facilitates storytelling and narration. In MEBS, the participants narrate stories based on the frames and prompts provided by the researcher, and two different versions of the frame story offer variations in the story elements.…

Xu, Lihua; Widjaja, Wanty; Ferguson, Joseph – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Digital video technology has been increasingly employed to investigate teacher professional noticing. While extensive research has been undertaken to explore the specialised knowledge base underlying teacher professional noticing, there is a need to more closely examine the methodological consequences of video-based approaches for understanding…

Mawhinney, Lynnette; Rinke, Carol R. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
In this paper, we explore the challenges inherent in conducting research with a hidden population -- how to conduct research with teachers who have left the classroom. Capturing the storied experiences of this group is vital to understanding how to effectively recruit, prepare, support, and sustain teachers in US classrooms for our next generation…
