Evaluating Social Science Research by Thomas R. Black
Book DescriptionThis volume offers students a basic introduction to assessing the meaning and validity of research in the social sciences and related fields. The ability to read published research critically is essential and is different from the skills involved in undertaking research using statistical analysis. Thomas R Black explains in clear and straightforward terms how students can evaluate research, with particular emphasis on research involving some aspect of measurement. The coverage of fundamental concepts is comprehensive and supports topics including research design, data collection and data analysis by addressing the following major issues: Are the questions and hypotheses advanced appropriate and testable? Is the research design sufficient for the hypothesis? Are the data gathered valid, reliable and objective? Are the statistical techniques used to analyze the data appropriate and do they support the conclusions reached?
