This volume offers students a basic introduction to assessing the meaning and validity of research in the social sciences and related fields. The ability to read published research critically is essential and is different from the skills involved in undertaking research using statistical analysis. Thomas R Black explains in clear and straightforward terms how students can evaluate research, with particular emphasis on research involving some aspect of measurement. The coverage of fundamental concepts is comprehensive and supports topics including research design, data collection and data analysis by addressing the following major issues: Are the questions and hypotheses advanced appropriate and testable? Is the research design sufficient for the hypothesis? Are the data gathered valid, reliable and objective? Are the statistical techniques used to analyze the data appropriate and do they support the conclusions reached?

In recent years, social scientists have - in common with many disciplines - become increasingly interested in the "rhetoric of inquiry". Sociologists and anthropolgists have become preoccupied with the analysis of the texts of their respective disciplines. It is recognized that social scientists construct and interpret representations of the social world. Moreover there is widespread recognition that the characteristics of each discipline are - in part - describable in terms of the distinctive conventions of a given genre. Consequently, the intellectual work of being a social scientist is - in large measure - predicated on conventions of reading and writing. This volume brings together a collection of important essays in the general area of sociological texts, and the conventional practices of reading and writing.

  • Linking Auditing and Metaevaluation Differentiating Standards, Procedures and Accepted Principles Preparing an Audit Report Constructing an Audit Trail Auditing an Inquiry Developing Other Applications.

The emergence of new evaluation paradigms raises serious questions about how merit can be established and judged. Linking Auditing and Metaevaluation addresses this concern, introducing a strategy by which the quality of inquiry procedures and products can be assured and retrospectively assessed. Based upon the model of fiscal auditing, the technique is applicable to a variety of social scientific investigations and specifically includes non - conventional paradigms such as naturalistic evaluation. Effective regardless of the nature of the inquiry, auditing is also an excellent means of organizing data, thus promoting theorizing and identification of relationships in that data. Each section includes exercises designed both to encourage readers to adapt concepts to their own inquiries and to promote feedback, which leads to the possibility of new insights and theories on metaevaluation.
