Product description


The author of this volume is to be commended for its clarity of coverage and for its user-friendly approach. Discussion questions and a list of additional resources are provided at the end of every chapter ... It is heartening that the text covers as much statistical ground as it does, with discussions of concepts and procedures not commonly found in introductory-level textbooks ... A helpful resource and one worthy of consideration by students and instructors alike. (Rebekha Abbuhl, California State University, USA Modern Language Journal)

An informative source of reference for those who wish to conduct research ... [Phakiti] should be commended for presenting what may be perceived by some as difficult or complicated concepts in a very user-friendly manner ... [and the book's] companion website provides a plethora of online materials, resources, lecture notes, data files, and useful activities ... With its comprehensive coverage of experimental research concepts, comprehensible use of language [and] accompanying online resources ... Aek Phakiti has been true to his words "to make the subject of experimental research in language learning accessible and meaningful to readers". (PASAA Journal 2016-01-01)

Research methods is a complex subject ... [but] Aek Phakiti's work does an admirable job [of covering all areas.] As a main text for a research methods course, this book would indeed be useful, as it not only outlines much of the what but also the why and how of research ... Phakiti's clear and direct writing make[s] it an appropriate graduate-level text for beginners and second language speakers ... [and] teachers of research methods in applied linguistics and SLA would certainly benefit from Phakiti's work as a main coursebook. (Japan Association for Language Teaching Journal 2016-04-20)
