About this item

The textbook is for a first graduate-level course on methods for conducting research into human physical activity, but it has also been used in undergraduate courses and as a planning and analysis resource for researchers. It covers an overview of the research process, statistical and measurement concepts in research, types of research, and writing the research paper. Among specific topics are developing the problem and using the literature, statistical issues in research planning and evaluation, socio-historical processes in sport studies, experimental and quasi-experimental research, and ways of reporting research.
