Reporting research in psychology : how to meet journal article reporting standards by Harris M Cooper( Book )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reporting Research in Psychology provides practical guidance on understanding and implementing journal article reporting standards (JARS) and meta-analyses reporting standards (MARS). Described for the first time in the sixth edition of the Publication Manual, these standards were designed to make the reporting of results both comprehensive and uniform Reporting standards, now widely used in the behavioral, social, educational, and medical sciences, provide transparency to the research process and make the generalization of results across studies more precise. In this book, Harris Cooper includes carefully chosen examples from articles published in APA journals that illustrate how JARS and MARS can be incorporated into various types of research studies, with engaging and helpful commentaries on each item. This book fills an important gap in the literature and is essential reading for undergraduate students in research methods classes as well as graduate students and early career researchers."--P.

The handbook of research synthesis and meta-analysis( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research synthesis is the practice of systematically distilling and integrating data from a variety of sources in order to draw more reliable conclusions about a given question or topic. The Handbook of Research Synthesis and Meta-Analysis draws upon years of groundbreaking advances that have transformed research synthesis from a narrative craft into an important scientific process in its own right. Cooper, Hedges, and Valentine have assembled leading authorities in the field to guide the reader through every stage of the research synthesis process--problem formulation, literature search and evaluation, statistical integration, and report preparation. The Handbook of Research Synthesis and Meta-Analysis incorporates state-of-the-art techniques from all quantitative synthesis traditions. Distilling a vast technical literature and many informal sources, the Handbook provides a portfolio of the most effective solutions to the problems of quantitative data integration. Among the statistical issues addressed by the authors are the synthesis of non-independent data sets, fixed and random effects methods, the performance of sensitivity analyses and model assessments, and the problem of missing data. The Handbook of Research Synthesis and Meta-Analysis also provides a rich treatment of the non-statistical aspects of research synthesis. Topics include searching the literature, and developing schemes for gathering information from study reports. Those engaged in research synthesis will also find useful advice on how tables, graphs, and narration can be used to provide the most meaningful communication of the results of research synthesis. In addition, the editors address the potentials and limitations of research synthesis, and its future directions

"The book is written with three goals in mind. First, I hope my conclusions help school administrators and teachers develop homework policies that benefit students. Second, I hope the review helps future homework researchers identify areas that are most in need of investigation. Finally, I hope the procedures I used to integrate the research prove instructive to others who are interested in making sense of social science literatures. I have tried to apply state-of-the-art techniques for gathering and integrating the homework research"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

Ethical choices in research : managing data, writing reports, and publishing results in the social sciences by Harris M Cooper( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many books discuss the ethical treatment of human subjects in behavioral research, yet few talk about the equally important ethical issues that arise when the data are being analyzed and the study is being written up. All researchers need to be aware of their professional responsibilities and make sound choices after the subjects have left. This practical and easy-to-follow guide walks readers through often overlooked decision points in the research process. Drawing from his extensive experience as a teacher of research methods and a senior editorial advisor, and from well-established standards of practice - including the APA Ethics Code - Harris Cooper is the ideal mentor in this process. -- Provided by publisher
APA handbook of research methods in psychology by American Psychological Association( Book )

16 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the pages of this handbook, you will find descriptions of many techniques that psychologists and others have developed to help them pursue a shared understanding of why humans think, feel, and behave the way they do. These are the tools that we use to conduct our rational analyses. At the broadest level, when choosing a method you make decisions about (a) what data or measurement techniques will best capture the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that interest you; (b) what research design best fits the question that you want to answer; and (c) what strategies for data analysis best match the characteristics of your design and measurements. The simplest choice for organizing the presentation of material is the temporal sequence in which you will make these decisions. This is roughly what we have done. So, the earliest chapters in Volume 1, Parts I and II, address the broadest questions related to research designs. These involve both (a) which research designs are most appropriate for which question and (b) how to think about the ethicality and feasibility of the designs that address your question and the measures available to you. Next, the chapters in Volume 1, Parts III and IV, describe the types of data that psychologists most often collect and how to determine whether the measurement techniques that you might choose are the best ones for your purpose"--Introduction.

"In the pages of this handbook, you will find descriptions of many techniques that psychologists and others have developed to help them pursue a shared understanding of why humans think, feel, and behave the way they do. These are the tools that we use to conduct our rational analyses. At the broadest level, when choosing a method you make decisions about (a) what data or measurement techniques will best capture the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that interest you; (b) what research design best fits the question that you want to answer; and (c) what strategies for data analysis best match the characteristics of your design and measurements. The simplest choice for organizing the presentation of material is the temporal sequence in which you will make these decisions. This is roughly what we have done. In Volume 2, interpretive research designs that emphasize a qualitative approach are detailed in Part I. Volume 2, Parts II through VI, introduces designs that emphasize an etic (or theory-specified), more quantitative approach to research. In Volume 2, Part V, designs are introduced that focus on theory-testing questions, rely heavily on quantification, and are used to study change in individual units. The designs in Volume 2, Part VI, are labeled "Neuropsychology" and "Biological Psychology." Here you will find designs for theory-driven research that derive largely from the more biological end of psychology's family tree"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)

APA handbook of research methods in psychology by American Psychological Association( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The three-volume APA Handbook of Research Methods in Psychology features descriptions of many techniques that psychologists and others have developed to help them pursue a shared understanding of why humans think, feel, and behave the way they do. At the broadest level, when choosing a method you make decisions about (a) what data or measurement techniques will best capture the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that interest you; (b) what research design best fits the question that you want to answer; and (c) what strategies for data analysis best match the characteristics of your design and measurements. The simplest choice for organizing the presentation of material is the temporal sequence in which you will make these decisions. This is roughly what we have done. Chapters on techniques for data analysis are found in Volume 3, Part I, with special attention to the fit between design, measurement, and analysis. Finally, issues and choices you must consider when you write up your research to share with the community of psychologists are discussed in the handbook's concluding chapters, in Volume 3, Part II."

Homework tips for parents : talking points for presenters to use with transparencies by Harris M Cooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set of overhead projector transparencies is intended to assist parents and teachers in understanding the importance of homework and the role that parental involvement plays in assigning homework. The transparencies respond to the following statements: Homework should only be given to students in grades 4 and above; Assigned homework should focus only on one aspect of learning; If a child is having trouble with his or her homework, parents should reach out to the teacher or school for help; and All homework should have a positive impact on students in the long run. The next three transparencies highlight what teachers can tell parents about homework, including providing a suitable area and materials, helping with time management, modeling "homework" such as balancing a checkbook, not doing the child's assignment for him or her, helping the child figure out what is hard homework and what is easy homework, and watching for signs of failure or frustration. The next four transparencies offer homework tips for reading and for math. The final transparency lists resource information: an 800-phone number for the Partnership for Family Involvement in Education and World Wide Web addresses for the Department of Education and for the Partnership. The presenter's guide provides a print version of each transparency as well as discussion for the true/false questions and elaboration on the "what teachers can tell parents about homework" points.
