Norwich, Brahm – Review of Education, 2020
This paper questions the idea that there are two opposing paradigms of educational research, often called positivist versus interpretivist. It argues that the 'paradigm' term has been used to avoid philosophical discussions about the nature of educational research. This has been done by understanding 'paradigms' to reflect metaphysical positions…

McMahon, Brian M.; Sembiante, Sabrina F. – Review of Education, 2020
Emphasis in school dropout literature has shifted from exploring wide-ranging causes of dropping out to soliciting a smaller number of predictive indicators to identify students at increased risk for dropping out. However, much of the past decade's Early Warning research excludes indicators that do not add to the predictive nature of the model…

Smith, Patriann; Kim, Deoksoon; Vorobel, Oksana; King, James R. – Review of Education, 2020
This methodological review highlights the trends in empirical studies where a methodological construct (i.e. verbal reports) intersects with content (i.e. literacy research). Specifically, we synthesise research on language learners' reading in which verbal reports were deployed as a methodological tool. Questioning the long-standing assumption…

Nag, Sonali; Vagh, Shaher Banu; Dulay, Katrina May; Snowling, Margaret J. – Review of Education, 2019
The general consensus in the field is that when the home language is different from the language of instruction in school then children's literacy attainments could slow down. In this 26-year review of the literature on children's literacy attainments in low- to middle-income countries, 40 correlational, ethnographic and intervention studies…

Black, Alison – Review of Education, 2019
There are more pupils of secondary-school age in special schools in England than those of primary-school age. In 2016, 60% of the 88,009 pupils aged between 5 and 16 in special schools in England were of secondary age. This disproportionality can be viewed as an indication that inclusion of children with special educational needs in mainstream…

Stylianides, Andreas J. – Review of Education, 2019
Prior research showed that many secondary students fail to construct arguments that meet the standard of proof in mathematics. However, this research tended to use survey methods and only consider students presenting their perceived proofs in written form. The limited use of observation methods and the lack of consideration of students presenting…

The aim of this study was to provide guidance to improve the completeness and clarity of meta-ethnography reporting.
