CSS 530 - Research Methods

This course in educational research is designed for the prospective producer of research. Emphasis will be placed upon two basic goals: to expose students to the principles of basic educational research methodology and to have students plan and design a research project. The role of research will be explored with pre-K to grade 12 literacy teachers or pre-K to grade 12 special education teachers in mind. It is expected that students striving to be professionals in the field of literacy or special education will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to distinguish between the legitimate claims and conclusions of research findings and ill-founded ones.
