Comprehensive yet accessible 

The updated Eleventh Edition of Educational Research: Competencies for Analysis and Applications introduces research mainly at a “how-to” skill and application level. A total instructional system, the book includes stated learning outcomes, instruction, and procedures for evaluating each outcome. It supports readers as they develop expertise in research, learning key concepts and skills and becoming involved in the research process itself. The authors take a down-to-earth approach that helps the reader become both an educational researcher and a competent consumer of educational research. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded assessments with feedback and interactive activities with expert feedback that provide invaluable opportunities for readers to engage in the research process, identify key elements in a published report, analyze and evaluate published research, and practice specific tasks required for a research project.
