Description/Abstract

This chapter examines the relevance of ethical issues in the practice of quantitative/ statistical research. By references to published ethical guidelines for statistical practice, the chapter provides a review of the key ethical considerations inherent in quantitative approaches to educational research. This range of issues is then used to examine a number of reports of influential quantitative-based research in education, including research on gender differences in achievement, teaching methods, intelligence testing, and school effectiveness. The overall thrust of the chapter is to reveal the situated nature of research ethics and how these are practised in quantitative research in the field of education.
