By Design: Planning Research on Higher Education


By Design: Planning Research on Higher Education. Richard J. Light; Judith D. Singer; John B. Willett, Harvard University Press, 1990.


Do students learn best when they study alone or in small groups? Do students who work longer and harder learn more in college? With more than fifty examples that Richard Light, Judith Singer, and John Willett explore in By Design, a lively nontechnical sourcebook for learning about colleges and universities. These authors believe that careful design of research on college effectiveness is the single most important step toward producing useful and valid findings. It is a pathbreaking textbook of modern research methods that both practitioners and students will find useful.
