Using observations in small-scale research : a beginner's guide by Mary Simpson( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers an introduction for teachers, students, and other educational practitioners to the techniques that transform informal observation into a recognized research tool. It is intended for those with little or no experience with formal observation. Four chapters focus on: (1) "Observation as a Data-Gathering Technique" (how observation is different from just looking, the kinds of studies in which observations are most useful, reasons to use observation for data gathering, and how to choose the best strategy for the study); (2) "Selecting What to Observe and How to Record Your Data" (who or what to look at, sample size, systematic recording, descriptive and narrative recording, and technological recording); (3) "Managing the Activity of Observing" (where one stands in regard to the physical setting, ethical issues, roles and relationships and claims one makes); and (4) "Processing Your Data" (planning one's analysis, analyzing systematic records, and analyzing descriptive and narrative records). (Contains 32 references.) (SM)
Parents, teachers, and children : a study of an educational home visiting scheme by John Raven( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of an evaluation of an educational home visiting (ehv) program in Scotland that utilized home visitors (attached to nursery schools) to promote parents' involvement in their children's educational development are presented in this report. Two assessment strategies were employed. One strategy (s1) was used to investigate the practical operation and effects of the program. The second strategy (s2) compared answers to interview questions provided by visited mothers, non-visited mothers residing in the visited mothers' locale, and non-visited mothers whose socioeconomic status was higher than visited mothers' status. Part One of the report provides a brief overview of the ehv and the evaluation program plus ehv background and operations information. Part Two introduces s1, identifies theoretical issues of practical importance in such areas as language development, discipline strategies and cognitive development. Possible and probable long term personal and social effects of the program are also discussed. Part Three introduces s2 and assesses the impact of the ehv program on parents' attitudes, beliefs, expectations and perceptions of their problems, their role, their children, and if and how they can guide their children's development. The implications of the data for home visiting and ehv program design are explored in Part Four. The concluding section, Part Five, provides recommendations for action and further research.

Parents' knowledge of and their preferences for the different types of existing preschool facilities are examined in Chapters iii and iv.
