This is a balanced plea for improving the way we teach social science methods and makes a compelling case for addressing the crisis in quantitative skills and reasoning in contemporary social science education. It does not seek to privilege quantitative social science but argues that the loss of quantitative competence is undermining the capacity to develop a mixed methods approach to social enquiry. I particularly value the emphasis on quantitative and systematic reasoning that are part and parcel of parcel of a quantitative approach. But this collection does more than make the case.
Very useful book on quantitative methods pedagogy. It provides us with helpful guidance to review our QM curriculum contents and pedagogical approaches.
I have not adopted this book as it is directed more at academics than students. Nonetheless I found it a very helpful book with regard to developing my own understanding of teaching quantitative research methods to students.
This is an exceptionally useful textbook for the lecturer and provides some excellent tips for assisting students who struggle with particular aspects of quantitative analysis. However, it has limited use for students themselves and thus will not be on our reading list for them.
Very good read, with lots of key elements we are looking to involve within the course
This book is essential for research methods and especially quantitative research teaching of undergraduate social science student
An excellent text for use in postgraduate education programmes to enable students to grapple not just with approaches to teaching quantitative research and statistics but to the embedding of numeracy in curricula more generally.
Adopted as an essential reading source
The book has been very helpful in applying new methods of teaching quantitative techniques in planning. It has also been helpful during our department's recent attempt to the revision of its undergraduate and graduate curriculum.
more interesting for teachers and lecturers
valuable for undergraduates who are starting out on research.
another well written text that provides students and lecturers with the basic information required to formulate quantitative strategies.
