ED 6100 Educational Research I (3 credits)

Critically informed educators begin with investigating their own practice. Students will explore principles of research design through analysis of qualitative, quantitative data from one's own setting. Students will then begin to develop a hypothesis of areas for improvement over the course of one's graduate degree. In this course students will develop efficacy in academic writing skills including formatting of documents in alignment with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and American Psychological Association (APA) citation practices. Introduction to the fundamental principles of educational research, the analysis and critique of quantitative, qualitative, and emerging research designs, data collection methods, and statistical approaches. This will provide the foundation for students completing their capstone project at the end of the program. This course should be taken early in a student's program of study to provide a sound basis for subsequent graduate-level coursework. Prerequisites: Admission to any BSU graduate program or consent of instructor.
