Rapanta, Chrysi; Felton, Mark – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This integrative literature review takes up the ongoing discussion about the place of mixed methods designs in educational research. We focus on studies that investigate the role of argumentation in inquiry-based learning, either as a means for enhancing inquiry (argument-based inquiry) or as a learning outcome (inquiry-based argument). We argue…

Creamer, Elizabeth; Edwards, Cherie – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Little attention has been paid to the processes that are involved in making sense of the role dissonance between sources of data has played in the development of theoretical insight. This methodologically oriented investigation considers an unusual set of case exemplars that used mixed methods and dialogic forms of mixing in ways that produced…

Gibbs, Benjamin G.; Shafer, Kevin; Miles, Aaron – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
While the use of inferential statistics is a nearly universal practice in the social sciences, there are instances where its application is unnecessary and potentially misleading. This is true for a portion of research using administrative data in educational research in the United States. Surveying all research articles using administrative data…

Hansen, Michael – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Citations have a central role in the dynamic process of knowledge development and as measures of research performance--yet little is known about their role in educational research or the qualities they are assumed to measure. Based on a citation context analysis, this study shows how a paradigmatic reference within classroom research has been used…

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…

Richard, Veronica M.; Lahman, Maria K. E. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
In this methodological discussion, the authors detail and reflect on the processes of using photo-elicitation interviewing as a way to align with positive qualitative methodologies, to gain access to participant beliefs and values, and to highlight participant voices through their choices of words and visuals. A review of the literature and an…

Wyatt, Mark – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2014
Various commentators have argued for years that the study of teachers' self-efficacy (TSE) beliefs, largely dominated by quantitative research methodologies, has been confused. Contentious issues include the very conceptualization of these beliefs, how they are defined and accessed through research and how the research is used. One of the…

Carter, Jackie; Noble, Susan; Russell, Andrew; Swanson, Eric – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2011
Increasing volumes of statistical data are being made available on the open web, including from the World Bank. This "data deluge" provides both opportunities and challenges. Good use of these data requires statistical literacy. This paper presents results from a project that set out to better understand how socioeconomic secondary data…

Thomas, Andrew – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2008
This article explores whether focus groups can constitute a culturally sensitive method of data gathering for educational leadership, management and related areas in a Gulf-Arab cultural context. Reviewing the literature on focus groups and cross-cultural psychology for the Arab region, it identifies key notions related to societal values such as…

Seale, Jane; Abbott, Chris – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2007
This paper argues that if education practitioners, policy-makers and researchers are to gain insights from new forms of online self-representations, there is a need to take stock of research involving homepages in order to identify important methodological issues and lessons that need to be addressed in future research. Home page authorship…
