2 Personal Introductions Name Program Where you teach The importance of this course to you Your expectations Syllabus

3 Introduction to Educational Research Objectives (see page 3). After reading chapter 1, you should able to: 1. List and briefly describe the major steps involved in conducting a research study. 2.Given a published article, identify and state: (a) the problem, (b) the procedures, (c) the method of analysis, and (d) the major conclusion.

4 Introduction-Objectives 3. Briefly define and state the major characteristics of the following six types of research: historical, qualitative, descriptive, correlational, casual-comparative, and experimental. 4.For each of these six types of research, briefly describe these possible research studies. Example: Experimental--A study to determine the effect of peer tutoring on the computational skill of third graders.

5 Multiple Choice Questions 1.Basic research centers on: (a) developing statistics (b) developing theory (c) application of theory (d) classroom interaction

6 2. Which of the following types of research would require the most ethical considerations ? 1. Descriptive research 2. Correlational research 3. Historical research 4. Experimental research

7 3. Basically, the scientific method involves: 1. recognition of the problem. 2. formulation of the hypothesis. 3. collecting and analyzing data. 4. all of the above.

8 4. Research used by industry to research products is called: 1. action research. 2. research and development. 3. product initiation research. 4. basic research.

9 5.Which research approach primarily involves the analysis of contextual data? 1. Qualitative 2. Quantitative 3. Numerical 4. Statistical

10 6. Qualitative research is often referred to in education as: 1. meaningful research. 2. ethnographic research. 3. fast research. 4. numerical research.

11 7. A study that seeks to compare the effect of the whole language reading approach on high and low readingachievers is called: 1. historical. 2. correlational. 3. experimental. 4. causal-comparative.

12 8. Studies that seek to determine if a relationship exists between two variables are called : 1. descriptive. 2. quantitative. 3. causal-comparative. 4. correlational.

13 9. A study of women in higher education is called: 1. historical. 2. correlational. 3. qualitative. 4. descriptive.

14 10. The major difference between educational research and other research is: 1. the use of statistics. 2. that more people are studied. 3. the nature of the phenomena studied. 4. the theory used.

15 11. Qualitative research tends to: 1.use statistical analysis. based on the null hypothesis. 3.have an hypothesis emerge as study progresses. 4.none of the above

16 12. A qualitative approach that attempts to answer in detail the characteristics of a particular entity, phenomenon, or person is: 1. ethnography. 2. grounded theory. 3. phenomenology. 4. a case study.

17 13. Survey research is usually referred to as : 1. experimental research. 2. descriptive research. 3. causal-comparative research. 4. qualitative research.

18 14. Most educational research is: 1. applied. 2. theory based. 3. qualitative. 4. statistical.

19 15. The treatment or “causal” factor is referred to as the : 1. dependent variable. 2. ethnographic effect. 3. independent variable. 4. relationship coefficient.
