Editorial Reviews

Review

The measurement chapters are very well done....I think [this book is] excellent.
Contemporary Psychology

A true asset of the book, and a marvelous resource for students and researchers alike, is the extensive citation of relevant references to guide the reader in acquiring additional knowledge on selected topics....an exceptionally readable book, with much to offer as a text for an introductory graduate sequence in research methods and statistics.
Journal of the American Statistical Association

...the richness of each topical discussion allows exploration in several directions and in depth with the goal of interpreting data (wherever they are found) in an intelligent thoughtful manner. Excellent! It belongs on one's desk within arm's length.
Perceptual and Motor Skills

...a good and very useful book to have, not in the least because it makes explicit so many obvious but often neglected issues in doing research....a helpful companion for scientists intent on improving their research and assessing the research of others.
Psychologica Belgica

--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
This is an essential book for anyone doing advanced postgraduate research (especially PhD level). It is quite heavy reading but is a definitive reference on the use, interpretation and reporting of statistics, including lots of little known information about effect size, sample sizes, statistical power not covered in standard texts.
Best of all, it exposes lots of common misconceptions and mistakes committed in most published research - after reading this book, you will be amazed how often these mistakes are made even in papers published in top journals. You can be pretty sure that if you satisfy the (very rigorous) requirements of this book, that your thesis will get past any examiner!
A statistics book written FOR researchers BY researchers (rather than statisticians)

Format: Hardcover
This is a very wide-ranging work, covering elements of psychometrics as well as statistics to the level of structural equation models. The book has a nice introductory tone, and should be easily grasped by most graduate students. Some of the information on CFA and SEM is now a bit dated. I smiled when I read the other reviewer's comments about Pedhazur's notable cynicism; I share his cynical view, having seen a multitude of published papers that were just garbage because the analyses were not thoughtful. Pedhazur's cynicism should be seen as a warning, and not taken beyond that, in my opinion.

This outstanding textbook is a "One Stop Shop" for the majority of essential topics for researchers with a statistical background. Exhaustive. Personnel without an anaylitical/technical background may find it hard to use. As a reference for someone doing a Phd, it is a book you'll refer to again and again.

Format: Hardcover
We used P&S (as we called it) in our PhD research methods seminar, and I still refer to it from time to time when I need to cite a source in research methodology. The intended audience of this book is definitely academic researchers and PhD students. Although I suppose a master's student with a concentration in quantitative methods might also find it useful.

P&S are comprehensive in their coverage of research methodology, particularly quantitative methods, and associated research designs. I found their chapters on instrument development, construct validation, and experimental designs particularly useful.

I also think P&S stands up well as compared to other similar works, such as Nunally, for instance. I keep both on my shelf, but I find Nunally more useful for cites that require a "rule of thumb" or justification of a particular research decision, while I find P&S more useful for "how to" aspects of research design or explanations of the many various procedures that quantitative researchers encounter in the course of their work.

Overall, I would recommend this book as a valuable addition to the library of any academician or PhD student.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This gi-normous tome is a beauty. It's wonderful to have design, measurement, and analysis cross-referenced within the same book. Yes, as the one low rating reviewer argues, Pedhazur and Schmelkin are rather cranky and critical, but I find their remarks go along way toward anchoring social science research in the broader landscape of formal research generally, and in the history of educational/psychological research specifically. The authors spend a good bit of text locating practices in tradition and context, and identifying changes in the practice of social science research. I find my own doctoral students benefit from as much sense of research as a professional endeavor as I can provide them. Thus, I don't have a problem with passages such as this: "The notion that the royal road to Truth, to discovery of the Laws of Nature, is through The Scientific method has until recently been part of the vision of scientific inquiry, as is exemplified by Pearson's (1911) assertion: 'There is no short cut to truth, no way to gain a knowledge of the universe except through the gateway of scientific method.' ... Nothing is, of course, further from the truth."

On the other hand, I really think it's important for the instructor to be an active mediator between student and text in the case.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Monica J. Kern VINE VOICE on August 17, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I assign this book in my graduate psychology research methods seminar. I also supplement the book with original sources, but I like to have my students read the relevant chapters from P&S first, as it provides a well-written overview and framework for integrating the articles they read subsequently. I haven't found a textbook for graduate research methods that I've liked better, and believe me I've looked.

The clarity of the writing is the greatest strength of the book. Chapters are written in an extremely easy to read manner, and they communicate difficult concepts clearly. I frequently get comments from my students such as "I didn't understand the multitrait-multimethod matrix article until I read the summary of it in Pedhazur & Schmelkin."

My students also find the chapters on statistical analysis quite helpful, even though I don't cover that material in my class. I recommend this book strongly to anybody in the social sciences.
