Research in learning and behavioral disabilities, employing a variety of methods and techniques, has provided a wealth of information relevant to practitioners. In order to be of value, however, this research must employ appropriate and rigorous methodology. Recent years have witnessed a variety of new techniques for research synthesis, research design, and data analysis, many of which have been applied to the study of learning and behavioral disabilities. In this volume, a variety of methodological approaches to research is described, applied, and evaluated. Chapters in this volume provide discussions of applications of qualitative research methodology, and techniques for statistical analysis for single subject data. In addition, techniques for structural equation modeling and item response theory are described with specific reference to the study of learning and behavioral disorders, as are techniques for handling missing data. Also discussed are procedures for dealing with specific research problems in areas such as behavioral disorders, school-wide intervention systems, and early reading as well as more general literacy interventions. Finally, methodology for integrative research reviews are described, as well as applications of research synthesis to quantitative research on cognitive processes in mathematics, and to qualitative research in co-teaching. This volume contains chapters authored by internationally recognized experts in the field of learning and behavioral disabilities. This book is intended for interested professionals and practitioners; researchers in learning and behavioral disabilities; and graduate students in psychology, education, and special education, particularly those interested in applications of research methodology in the study of learning and behavioral disabilities.

For defining research problems and finding their appropriate solutions, you need to follow a structured approach. A logical series of steps need to be performed right from selecting a topic of research to report writing. Every finding needs to be strengthened by arguments, which are adequately substantiated by data. Research in management areas needs massive experimentation and data support. Management research requires more theoretical rigours and practical insights. However, not much of the available reading material provides extensive focus on management research. Yet students are required to comprehend the nitty-gritty of doing research-right from developing their project reports to final dissertation, as part of their core curriculum. This book is well equipped with fundamentals of research and research designs. Written in a simple language, it covers all facets of management areas with details of statistical tools required for analysis in a research work. Many practical examples and tips for management researchers strengthen the content of this book. It is an essential reading for management students as well as for those who are aspiring to do their doctoral work in management. It conforms to the core syllabus of all universities and institutes.

The Researcher's Toolkit is a practical rather than an academic text for all those undertaking, perhaps for the first time, small-scale research. Written by an experienced team of practising researchers, it covers the entire research process - from designing and submitting a research proposal through to its completion. This book is suitable for all researchers, but is particularly designed for those practitioner-based researchers from the fields of education, social work, nursing, criminal justice and community work. This fresh new idea for those conducting small-scale research comes from a team of practising researchers who possess a broad range of experiences and knowledge of research design, execution and completion. They write in a user-friendly style that those researchers new to the subject will find easy to follow and understand. It will act both as a roadmap to planning, execution and completing research and also as a dip-in reference guide. Using features such as activity boxes to highlight key concepts and short summary boxes to indicate fundamental elements of the research area under discussion, this accessible book will be of great value to all who read it.

This Book is based upon my understanding in research as an academic, practitioner and educator. The difficulties faced in accepting research as an academic, my exposures about to what was relevant and irrelevant in the field as a research practitioner, my development of the aptitude to successfully communicate difficult concepts in simple language without sacrificing precisely and meticulousness as an educator and discussion with experts in the same field is the basis of this book. Many aspects of methodology were supplementary on the basis of the response of the teachers of research methods from different region. This experience has taken several forms, including research-based teaching, seminar projects, and supervising numerous bachelor, master’s and PhD theses. This work has helped me to discover which examples of other researchers’ work most serve to inform what research is about.

This introduction to communication research methods takes the student from the conceptual beginnings of a research project through the design and analysis. Emphasizing the correct questions to ask and how to approach the answers, authors Gary Petty, Cheryl Campanella Bracken, and Elizabeth Babin approach social science methods as a language to be learned, requiring multiple sessions and reinforcement through practice. They explain the basics of conducting communication research, facilitating students’ understanding of the operation and roles of research so that they can better critique and consume the materials in their classes and in the media. The book takes an applied methods approach, introducing students to the conceptual elements of communication science and then presenting these elements in a single study throughout the text, articulating the similarities and differences of individual methods along the way. The study is presented as a communication campaign, involving multiple methodologies. The approach highlights how one method can build upon another and emphasizes the fact that, given the nature of methodology, no single study can give complete answers to our research questions. Unique features of the text: It introduces students to research methods through a conceptual approach, and the authors demonstrate that the statistics are a tool of the concepts. It employs an accessible approach and casual voice to personalize the experience for the readers, leading them through the various stages and steps. The presentation of a communication campaign demonstrates each method discussed in the text. This campaign includes goals and objectives that will accompany the chapters, demonstrates each individual methodology, and includes research questions related to the communication campaign. The tools gained herein will enable students to review, use, understand, and critique research, including the various aspects of appropriateness, sophistication and utility of research they encounter.
