We can objectively study the level of school exclusions for offences classed as bullying: but any study of what counts as bullying, why it happens, and how it feels to be bullied, would need to consider the various perspectives of those who are involved as offender, victims, etc. qxd 4/17/2007 11:56 AM Page 45 How do Educational Researchers Think about their Research? research context being studied. For example, a study that explored student learning through a survey of examination and test results could be objective (although it would only be considered meaningful to those who accepted such outcomes as valid measures of learning).

In experimental psychology the term ‘paradigm’ is often used in a slightly more restricted sense to mean a specific outline research design that can be adopted in similar studies. In education (and most social sciences) paradigm has a more general meaning: studies in the same paradigm may have quite different designs, but share basic assumptions about the nature of research. 1 Distinguishing two approaches to educational research trying to do, and how they are setting out to do it. Perhaps unsurprisingly (in view of the complexity of social sciences), research paradigms have been characterised in many ways, with different labels used, and a number of ‘candidates’ for educational research paradigms may be found in the literature.

This model is neither right nor wrong. It is a representation that is designed to reflect some key features of the complex phenomenon that is educational research. However, to the extent that such a model is seen as a prescription of what should be done (what educational research should be like), it can become a ‘self-fulfilling prophecy’. If research students are expected to think in terms of ERP1 or ERP2 when planning their enquiries, and write according to such a model in their theses, then such a model could increasingly match actual practice.
