Introduction to Research Methods in Education focuses on helping the reader develop a clear, logical, and conceptual understanding of the nature of empirical research in education, and of how those ideas lead to and underlie the principal research techniques. Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches are covered, along with practical guidance on issues such as how to prepare a research proposal, write a literature review, and analyze different types of data.

About the Author

Keith F. Punch is a social research expert and was Winthrop Professor in the Graduate School of Education, the University of Western Australia, and is now Professor Emeritus in the University of Western Australia.


'[This book ] is well targeted, with the usual range of summaries, suggestions for further reading, study questions and exercises, and boxed examples. The chapters on quantitative research design, data collection and analysis are particularly well pitched for novice researchers, and I can certainly see how these chapters could be used in a teaching and learning context, with students new to, or with little confidence of quantitative approaches' - British Journal of Sociology of Education
