    Very useful in planning educational research. Mixes theory and practice fluidly and gives useful examples and tips. It also points you to other resources and explicitly shares its limitations. Highly recommended.

"they [anti-positivists] would agree that the social world can only be understood from the standpoint of the individuals who are part of the ongoing action being investigated and that their model of a person is an autonomous one, not the plastic version favoured by positivist researchers." ** "The normative paradigm (or model) contains two major orienting ideas (Douglas, 1973): first, that human behaviour is essentially rule- governed; and second, that it should be investigated by the methods of natural science. The interpretive paradigm, in contrast to its normative counterpart, is characterized by a concern for the individual. Whereas normative studies are positivist, all theories constructed within the context of the interpretive paradigm tend to be anti- positivist." "Positivism strives for objectivity, measurability, predictability, controllability, patterning, the construction of laws and rules of behavior, and the ascription of causality; the interpretive paradigms strive to understand and interpret the world in terms of its actors. In the former, observed phenomena are important; in the latter, meanings and interpretations are paramount." "Its [Critical theory OR the paradigm of critical educational research] purpose is not merely to understand situations and phenomena but to change them. In particular, it seeks to emancipate the disempowered, to redress inequality and to promote individual freedoms within a democratic society." ** "[According to Doll 1993 and opposing Tyler (1949)], Not all knowledge can be included in the curriculum; the curriculum is a selection of what is deemed to be worthwhile knowledge. The justification for that selection reveales the ideologies and power in decision-making in society and through the curriculum. Curriculum is an ideological selection from a range of possible knowledge. This resonates with a principle from Habermas (1972) that knowledge and its selection are neither neutral nor innocent."

    I read the 4th edition years ago, and compering with this edition (8th) I can find many great updated chapters. Moreover, this edition is more detailed and interpreting the elements of research with more examples and implements. I think it is very useful reference to do researches.

    Cohen describes the whole research metrology in social science. However, the book is too complicated with its counter arguments of positive and negative opinions of scholars. Yet, it is probably the most useful one to start doing research.

    This is a somewhat dry field but this book makes it a lot drier than it has to be. It is also not for beginners in the field - there are few definitions and they rely on prior knowledge of the terms. They barely serve as memory triggers. There are better books on the topic.

    Good overview of QT and QL general methods of research. Good to make as a reference book but not in-depth key methodology of your research.

    Bit longwinded. This does summarize a lot of the relevant research methodology, but there are much clearer books out there.

    I actually only have the 5th edition... but anyway, this book might actually restore my sanity.
