“The text is organized into eight chapters, which should make it easy to adapt to a variety of class scheduling designs….If you are teaching a research class to novice researchers, especially those in education, I would highly recommend this book for its practical approach, and the emphasis on writing and the use of assessment data. Teachers are often overwhelmed with available data in their classrooms and schools understanding as well as the data. This text provides much needed practical instructions for both issues.”
