Frequently compares and contrasts quantitative and qualitative approaches so that students understand nuances of the process from each perspective. Gives in-depth coverage of several key design types, including experimental, quasi-experimental, correlational, survey, grounded theory, ethnographic, narrative research, mixed method, and action research.

Six fundamental steps of research are discussed with concrete examples in the eight chapters in the "Steps in the Research Process" section of the text.
