analyzing research 2

Review the sample research article on parent involvement by Deslandes and Bertrand (2005) at the end of Chapter 1 again. Answer the following questions:

  1. The authors mention the purpose and research question guiding the study as follows: “To examine how the four psychological constructs influence parent-involvement decisions across the three secondary grade levels, we posed the following research question: What are the relative contributions of parents’ role constructions, self-efficacy, perceptions of teacher invitations, and perceptions of adolescent invitations to predict parent involvement at home and at school in Grades 7, 8, and 9?” Critique this purpose statement by identifying at least four elements that go into a good quantitative purpose statement.
  2. The authors mention the following in paragraph 18, about the variable, “parents’ role:” “Parents role construction…We used a construct that comprised 10 items (alpha=.72) that measure behaviors that are parent focused, school focused, and mainly partnership focused in accordance with the adolescents’ education.” What important information is missing in this discussion that would indicate that the variable is a good one to use?

Review the sample research article on the mothers’ trust in school principals study (Shelden et al., 2010) at the end of Chapter 1 again, and answer the following question:

  1. The authors advance in paragraph 14 the question: “What are the perspectives of mothers of children with disabilities on trust in school principals?” What is the central phenomenon being explored in this study that can be gleaned from this question?
