Using semi-structured interviews in small-scale research : a teacher's guide by Eric Drever( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interviewing is one of the most common methods used in small-scale educational research. This book is about semi-structured interviews, in which the interviewer sets up a general structure by deciding in advance the ground to be covered and the main questions to be asked. The detailed structure is left to be worked out during the interview, and the person being interviewed has a fair degree of freedom in what to talk about, how much to say, and how to express it. Semi-structured interviewing is a very flexible technique for small-scale research. It is not suitable for studies involving large numbers of people, but is most helpful in mini-studies and case studies. Chapters address: (1) the use of interviews; (2) different kinds of interviews; (3) the interview schedule; (4) planning and preparation; (5) doing the interview; (6) analyzing the interview; and (7) reporting and communication. (Contains one figure, three references, and five suggestions for further reading.) (Sld)

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 102 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.

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

8 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers are being encouraged to use observational strategies for a variety of professional purposes in assessment and evaluation. Observation differs from just "looking" in that the personal experience of looking is transformed into a public event by the systematic recording of what is seen and by subsequent analysis and interpretation. Chapter 1 introduces techniques of observation and considers its advantages and disadvantages as a data gathering tool. Chapter 2 presents the two main methods of recording data, systematic recording and descriptive and narrative recording. The use of technological aids to recording is also reviewed. Chapter 3 discusses how to plan the management of observation procedures and the personal and ethical issues involved. The most commonly used methods of analyzing data are described in chapter 4, considering the processing of both quantitative and qualitative data. (Contains 12 figures and 27 references.) (Sld)
