Educational Research Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed Approaches by R. Burke Johnson, Larry B. Christensen

Educational Research is a best-selling comprehensive introductory research methods textbook for upper level undergraduate and graduate students.

It also develops their skills in: * Writing a proposal * Constructing a questionnaire * Conducting an empirical research study on their own. Maintaining its conversational and accessible writing style, this Fifth Edition includes several new chapters: * Action Research for Lifelong Learning, which helps to set the stage for the rest of the coverage in the book * Narrative Inquiry and Case Study Research, and Phenomenology, Ethnography, and Grounded Theory, providing expanded guidance on selecting a research method.
