van Velzen, Joke H. – Research in the Schools, 2019
Research on teaching effectiveness, especially those concerning teaching approaches and instructional strategies, rarely shows conclusively the effectiveness of an intervention. Then, these (quasi-) experimental studies on teaching effectiveness often involve distal measures of teaching components. In this article, the focus is on another likely…

Newman, Isadore; Houchins, David E. – Research in the Schools, 2018
Special education researchers have indicated the need for an increased use of mixed methods research to address many of the complex issues in the field. An important first step in designing mixed methods research is to develop quality research questions. The aim of this article is to provide fundamental information on the formation of mixed…

Onwuegbuzie, Anthony J.; Corrigan, Julie A. – Research in the Schools, 2018
Conducting mixed methods research studies has the potential to help researchers who represent special education to address relatively complex questions compared to monomethod research studies. Therefore, it is important to determine the prevalence of mixed methods research studies in special education, especially because the prevalence rate…

Schoonenboom, Judith; Hitchcock, John H.; Johnson, R. Burke – Research in the Schools, 2018
This article is predicated on the idea that, by interacting with differences of various kinds, researchers in special education can obtain conclusions that are more nuanced, sophisticated, richer, and, hence, better than when they would have ignored such differences. Based on the application of existing research guidelines to 6 recent exemplars of…

Hitchcock, John H.; Johnson, R. Burke; Schoonenboom, Judith – Research in the Schools, 2018
The central purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the many ways in which special educators can generate and think about causal inference to inform policy and practice. Consideration of causality across different lenses can be carried out by engaging in multiple method and mixed methods ways of thinking about inference. This article…

Heyvaert, Mieke; Maes, Bea; Onghena, Patrick – Research in the Schools, 2011
Historically, qualitative and quantitative approaches have been applied relatively separately in synthesizing qualitative and quantitative evidence, respectively, in several research domains. However, mixed methods approaches are becoming increasingly popular nowadays, and practices of combining qualitative and quantitative research components at…

Leech, Nancy L.; Haug, Carolyn A.; Robinson, Ellen Hill – Research in the Schools, 2011
In response to the dearth of research agendas that connect teacher education and teaching in the field and to the call for more programmatic research, the purpose of this paper is to present the Agenda for Researching Teaching (ART). The ART is a visual research agenda that spans the time from a teacher candidate learning to teach to impacting…

Sullivan, Jeremy R. – Research in the Schools, 2001
Summarizes the post-1994 literature in psychology and education regarding statistical significance testing, emphasizing limitations and defenses of statistical testing and alternatives or supplements to statistical significance testing. (SLD)

McLean, James E., Ed.; Kaufman, Alan S., Ed. – Research in the Schools, 2001
"Research in the Schools" publishes empirical studies focusing on the results of applied educational research, scholarly reviews of research, descriptions of technology applications and innovative teaching strategies, and other topics of interest to educational researchers. Issue number 1 contains these articles: (1) "Factors…

Onwuegbuzie, Anthony J.; Slate, John R.; Paterson, Frances R. A.; Watson, Mary H.; Schwartz, Robert A. – Research in the Schools, 2000
Studied empirical factors related to achievement in educational research courses using a sample of 121 graduate students. Students with the lowest achievement tended to have or exhibit at least one of these characteristics: younger age, lower overall achievement, higher levels of research anxiety, higher statistics anxiety, poorer study habits,…

Kaufman, Alan S. – Research in the Schools, 1998
Three articles in this special issue explore issues related to the use and misuse of statistical significance testing, the major methodological issue in current educational research. Comments on these articles and rejoinders by the authors of the first three articles explore additional aspects of statistical significance testing. (SLD)

McLean, James E.; Ernest, James M. – Research in the Schools, 1998
Although statistical significance testing as the sole basis for result interpretation is a flawed practice, significance tests can be useful as one of three criteria that must be demonstrated to establish a position empirically. Statistical significance testing provides evidence that an event did not happen by chance but gives no evidence of the…

Levin, Joel R. – Research in the Schools, 1998
Outlines concerns that must be addressed by those who advocate replacing statistical hypothesis-testing with alternative data-analysis strategies. Suggests that commonly recommended alternatives are not perfect and that various hypothesis-testing modifications can be implemented to make the process and its conclusions more credible. Hypothesis…

Nix, Thomas W.; Barnette, J. Jackson – Research in the Schools, 1998
Attempts to clarify the positions of T. Nix and J. Barnette on statistical significance testing, advocates the routine use of effect size, and encourages reporting results in simple terms. (SLD)

Ernest, James M.; McLean, James E. – Research in the Schools, 1998
Discusses commonalities in the papers of this special issue, addresses concerns about errors of omission expressed by T. Knapp, and provides some recommendations for the use of statistical significance testing with requirements for estimates of effect sizes. (SLD)
