Wright, Daniel B. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Many education policies require estimating whether students in different grades are on track for achieving certain educational standards. One approach for constructing these cut scores is to estimate the values on tests that predict reaching targets on subsequent tests. Whether a student is deemed on target can affect the student's course…

Headley, Marcia Gail; Swoboda, Christopher M.; Foote, Lori – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
"What works" policies are the latest incarnation of best practices in educational research. Instituted by various organisations internationally, they define what kind of research counts as "evidence" for reform-oriented decision-making. While some countries rely on systematic analyses and meta-analyses, the U.S. favours primary…

Chong, Pei Wen; Graham, Linda J. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2013
International comparison is complicated by the use of different terms, classification methods, policy frameworks and system structures, not to mention different languages and terminology. Multi-case studies can assist in the understanding of the influence wielded by cultural, social, economic, historical and political forces upon educational…

Wall, Kate; Higgins, Steve; Hall, Elaine; Woolner, Pam – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2013
In research textbooks, and much of the research practice, they describe, qualitative processes and interpretivist epistemologies tend to dominate visual methodology. This article challenges the assumptions behind this dominance. Using exemplification from three existing visual data sets produced through one large education research project, this…

O'Brien, Mark; Varga-Atkins, Tunde; Umoquit, Muriah; Tso, Peggy – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2012
This article addresses the under-theorization of visual techniques for social science research applications through the cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT). The "problem" of "the visual" in research is given an ontological framing by highlighting the ways in which the use of visual techniques as research tools--designed…

Hadfield, Mark; Haw, Kaye – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2012
In this article, we set out to explore what we describe as the use of video in various modalities. For us, modality is a synthesizing construct that draws together and differentiates between the notion of "video" both as a method and as a methodology. It encompasses the use of the term video as both product and process, and as a data…
