This book provides an introduction to using quantitative methods in educational research. The author writes for non-mathematical students, avoiding the use of mathematical formulae wherever possible. No prior knowledge of quantitative methods is needed to use this book. The author′s approach features

· a realistic approach, using actual databases

· an emphasis on the use of effect sizes

· a user-friendly approach, based on the latest version of SPSS throughout.

The use of two real educational datasets keeps the content relevant, and shows students the imperfections and problems which they will meet in real-life research. The datasets use common international measures and access to the datasets, allowing students to practice and answer the questions that follow each chapter, is available though the book website.

This book is for researchers and students studying research methods in education. It is suitable as a main textbook for quantitative methods courses, as well as a resource for researchers in this field.

Great book! Very helpful on my dissertation journey.

Excellent condition!

This book is a lifesaver. I'm working on my doctoral thesis and like the Lone Ranger, this book came to my rescue!
Wanenai
This is a great, easy to read, step-by-step book. Even if you are math-phobic, this book is very useful and the screen shots are great.
Very Old Chap
Clearly written, and an easier read than many research or statistics books. Very clear instructions on using SPSS.
Billy Granson
This book helped me perform my data analysis for my education dissertation. Outstanding book. Muijs covers all of the basics, and gets into some advanced topics.

Overall a great SPSS resource book. Highly recommend.
Darksinger
This book was amazingly helpful. The directions and examples are clear, and it helped me navigate SPSS with ease.
At last, a book that not only explains statistics for educational research clearly, accurately and accessibly, but also gives step-by-step instructions - with screen shots - for how to carry out each procedure using SPSS. Muijs' book is a must-have for every education major, as well as for arts graduates doing postgraduate qualifications in education. I will be using it this year to introduce my postgrads, most of whom have backgrounds in the arts, to the stats they need for their courses; and I'll urge them to buy their own copies. This will not only give them a ready reference book, but will also, I'm sure, reduce significantly the numbers of anguished emails and last-minute one-to-one tutorials I succumb to in the frantic fortnight before term papers are due. Bless your heart, Daniel Muijs.
