The purpose of the present article is to demonstrate how quantitative research articles can be made much more reader-friendly. In particular, we illustrate how statistical language and research terminology can be simplified in reports. Moreover, using a published article, we demonstrate how quantitative reports could be re-structured to make them more reader-friendly, without sacrificing any important statistical information. We contend that by restructuring these reports, practitioners and stakeholders would be in a much better position to read quantitative research articles, whose findings could then be utilized to improve the quality of education. As such, not only would the divide between researchers and practitioners be reduced, but also educational research studies would have a much bigger impact on schools. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality & Quantity Springer Journals

Abstract

The purpose of the present article is to demonstrate how quantitative research articles can be made much more reader-friendly. In particular, we illustrate how statistical language and research terminology can be simplified in reports. Moreover, using a published article, we demonstrate how quantitative reports could be re-structured to make them more reader-friendly, without sacrificing any important statistical information. We contend that by restructuring these reports, practitioners and stakeholders would be in a much better position to read quantitative research articles, whose findings could then be utilized to improve the quality of education. As such, not only would the divide between researchers and practitioners be reduced, but also educational research studies would have a much bigger impact on schools.
