Sample text

In the UK the Rose Report on reading (named after its author, Jim Rose, who was in charge of inspections for the Government’s quality assurance agency for schools) was pulled out of the research community’s activities because of the political concern about reading attainment (Rose, 2006). 1 deals with the Rose Report). Once new policy has been introduced, policy makers and others want to know that it is working. This is Policy Testing. It happens in two ways. Either consultants are commissioned (these can come from the academic or commercial research communities) or the academic community judges the policy itself.

What if the lecturer was bad and the tutor was good? Our results would show the effect of a member of staff, not the teaching method. The best guidance anyone can be given at the start of their research career is to understand all the models of research practice, but when it comes to the research itself, do not start with an ideal procedure, start with the research issue. Do not contort your research to fit in with the ideal. Let your research issue guide you in the way in which it wants to be investigated.
