Document Number: 5113 A Policymaker’s Primer on Education Research: How to Understand, Evaluate and Use It - This primer provides an overview of research methods and statistics. It is highly interactive, with flash animation and hot links to examples, additional discussions, pop-up definitions of technical terms and an education research glossary. It also features a flowchart and other tools to guide users through an assessment of research studies. There’s a special “Understanding Statistics Tutorial” and another tutorial on searching the ERIC database. For users who want an abbreviated version of the material in the Primer, there is an “Applied Quick Primer” keyed to the most basic sections. (Patricia A.
