Publisher Comments:

Aids students in understanding and interpreting quantitative research articles

Designed for anyone who needs to learn to read and understand empirical reports in the social and behavioral sciences, this multidisciplinary book provides individuals with the knowledge necessary to understand research without overwhelming them with information about how to conduct research. His enthusiasm for methods present on every page, author Francis C. Dane wants readers to have the skills to evaluate research and critically use empirical results. Readers will gain a greater appreciation for the ways in which consuming research can add to their understanding of the way the world works and how they can enhance their efforts to improve it.

Key Features

Every facet of evaluating research is covered-from key terms and concepts to communicating the final resultsThe author pairs statistical concepts and procedures with appropriate research methods Strong pedagogy such as chapter overviews, summaries, key terms, and application exercises allows readers to check their understanding of the material

This book can be used in both upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level courses in public policy, public health, education, sociology, psychology, social work and nursing.

Book News Annotation:

Dane (ethics and public policy, Saginaw Valley State U., Michigan) presents a textbook for a course explaining to students in the social sciences how to evaluate research and use empirical results critically to analyze and implement policy as an administrator, educator, or policy analyst. He assumes that students who have the slightest interest whatsoever in conducting their own research will take one of his other courses. His treatment of statistics, for example, is designed to be a review for students who have studied them before, but a helpful introduction to reading them to those who have not. Among the topics are reading a research report, sampling, experimental and quasi-experimental research, survey research, archival research, and evaluation research.
