Research Design by Stephen Gorard Research Design, Paperback (February 2012)

This book discusses the nature of design, design notation, a flexible approach to new designs, a range of standard design models, and tips for real-life problems - all in an easy to understand style, for those wanting to design research and make critical judgements about the designs of others

Equity in Education by Stephen Gorard Equity in Education, Hardback (February 2010)

Based on the views of teenagers across Europe and in the Far East, this book argues that we need to reconsider how we judge schools and what they are for. It shows that the treatment of pupils in schools makes more difference to teenagers' views on society, and on what it means to be fair, than it does to differences in attainment.

Using Everyday Numbers Effectively in Research by Stephen Gorard Using Everyday Numbers Effectively in Research, Paperback (April 2006)

Illustrates how numbers can be used successfully for research purposes - without you ever having to consider confidence intervals, probability densities, Gaussian distributions, or any of those complicated and generally useless things that appear in treatises on statistics. This guide is useful for educational and social science researchers.
