Review

"This book provides interesting reading for students in research method courses and belongs on the must-read list of investigators who are considering the application of ESM to their own research." (Susan L. Trumbetta 2007-07-26)

In collaboration with students, he has conducted ESM studies of college students, adolescents in residential treatment, and LGB emerging adults. His research interests primarily involve family and peer factors that promote optimal development and evaluations of preventive interventions for antisocial behavior.

Dr. Schmidt has trained national and international teams of researchers in ESM study design, administration and analysis.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We use this book in our Study of Experience class, taught by Mike C himself. If it is good enough to use to train social scientists, it is good enough for anyone interested in ESM. Very well written and applicable to anyone interested in this research method and how it can be used
