EDRS Research Methods

EDRS 810 PROBLEMS AND METHODS IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH (Spring 2011)
Dr. Brigham introduced us to the world of reading, evaluating, and preparing research.  I appreciated his frank honesty and have sought his advice in the semesters that followed this class.

EDRS 811 QUANTITATIVE METHODS IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH (Fall 2011)
My aspirations in this class, as well as the knowledge I acquired, did not match the final assessment of my performance in the course.  I believe in statistics, but also feel that too much faith is entrusted to these inferential numbers.

EDRS 812 QUALITATIVE METHODS IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH (Spring 2012)
Dr. Samaras eased us into the murky waters of qualitative research, step by step.  While the interviews I conducted were a delightful activity, combing them for prevalent themes was challenging.  In the end, I feel that this is a form a research that I could do very well.

EDRS 824 MIXED METHODS (Fall 2012)
Dr. Maxwell is a passionate researcher and his vision was infectious to me.  I now have a broader and more comprehensive view of validity in the context of a research project.  Methodological point of view and validity concerns are not a one-time consideration, but rather a continuous charge of the researcher.
