Scott-Barrett, Juliet; Cebula, Katie; Florian, Lani – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This study explores the opportunities and dilemmas that have been encountered by researchers seeking the views of young people with autism. Twelve researchers were interviewed about their experiences in this field. Through exploration of the complex methodological and ethical issues that they encountered, this study aims to better understand how…

de Bruin, Catriona L. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
Policies promoting evidence-based practice in education typically endorse evaluations of the effectiveness of teaching strategies through specific experimental research designs and methods. A number of researchers have critiqued this approach to evaluation as narrow and called for greater methodological sophistication. This paper discusses the…

Parsons, Sarah; Guldberg, Karen; Porayska-Pomsta, Kaska; Lee, Rachael – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
Storytelling is a powerful means of expression especially for voices that may be difficult to hear or represent in typical ways. This paper reports and reflects on our experiences of co-creating digital stories with school practitioners in a project focusing on embedding innovative technologies for children on the autism spectrum in classroom…

MacLeod, Andrea Georgia; Lewis, Ann; Robertson, Christopher – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2014
This paper explores a participatory research approach used with 10 higher education students on the autism spectrum (mainly diagnosed with Asperger syndrome). The methodology sought to overcome barriers to participation. Participants' views were sought on the benefits and challenges related to their participation. Most participants opted for…

Parsons, Sarah; Cobb, Sue – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2014
Technology design in the field of human-computer interaction has developed a continuum of participatory research methods, closely mirroring methodological approaches and epistemological discussions in other fields. This paper positions such approaches as examples of inclusive research (to varying degrees) within education, and illustrates the…

Frederick, Karen; Barnard-Brak, Lucy; Sulak, Tracey – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2012
There has been a significant increase in the use of secondary data sets. Many such data sets purport to be nationally representative. Secondary data sets include research commissioned by the National Center for Education Statistics, the Centers for Disease Control, and other public entities. Research increasingly utilizes these secondary data in…

Nieminen, Timo A.; Choi, Serene Hyun-Jin – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2008
Quantitative behaviour analysis requires the classification of behaviour to produce the basic data. This can be challenging when the theoretical taxonomy does not match observational limitations, or if a theoretical taxonomy is unavailable. Binary keys allow qualitative observation to be used to modify a theoretical taxonomy to produce a practical…

Waltz, Mitzi – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2007
To look for the answers of "What is the relationship between "ethics" and "quality" in education research?," this article explores factors that bind the two too tightly together for extrication, including representation of subject and researcher mindsets, the setting of research agendas, research design and funding. Using research in autism as a…
