Summary: "What are the common pitfalls experienced by school researchers, and how can those pitfalls be avoided? This edited volume draws on the collective expertise of both established and emerging names in the field, providing an unparalleled resource for those interested in conducting psychological research within school settings. First and foremost, the contributors offer a framework for conceptualizing rigorous research collaboratively with schools, instead of on or in them, by emphasizing the participation of administrators, teachers, and parents. With detailed information on how to build and maintain research programs and avoid common problems, this volume includes insights from both researchers and the education professionals with whom they collaborate. Organized to reflect the research process from beginning to end, the chapters examine first how to initiate and nurture relationships with school stakeholders, move next to improving research design and methodology, and conclude with how to best disseminate research findings to scholars, practitioners, and study participants. Conducting Science-Based Psychology Research in Schools is an essential tool for courses on research methods and school-based research in fields ranging from psychology to education, social work, and family and human development"--Jacket.
