Description: This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText, or an electronic book. This introductory text is written specifically for consumers of research - anyone who uses the results and implications of research studies to enhance their knowledge and improve their practice. The focus is on guiding students toward a basic understanding of the research process, allowing them to develop the skills, knowledge and strategies needed to read, interpret, and evaluate the quality of research reports. The text provides balanced coverage of quantitative, qualitative, and combined research approaches. Reviewers' comments:"The structure of the book is great. [The authors use] language that helps the reader become engaged and invites them to start applying what they have learned to their situation immediately. The examples of the journal articles with the notations is very helpful and we use these for discussion in the class quite a bit. I also like the reviewing we've learned and practicing your skills at the end of the chapter. I much prefer the consumer approach of this text over others on the market." -- Candyce Reynolds, Portland State University "Understanding Research is true to its name; it is much more user friendly, it explains WHAT research IS. It does an EXCELLENT job of covering all of the material I currently cover. [The authors] (fortunately) force me to provide a balanced, comparative description of both kinds of research... I find the writing style to be clear, interesting and engaging. " -- Carol A. Friesen, Ball State University Video-Enhanced Pearson eText.
