Education research is the field of study that examines learning processes that shape educational outcomes. Scholars seek to understand and explain how learning takes place through the course of an individual’s life. Education researchers may analyze student learning, teaching strategies and training and classroom management.
Education research refers to understanding and articulating how a specific teaching or learning issue may be resolved. This type of research can be quantitative—which involves statistics—or qualitative—which includes a thematic analysis. The goal of this research is to employ a methodological process to contribute to the existing body of knowledge on the educational landscape.
