Reporting results and conclusion

Frances K. Stage, Kathleen Manning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


As editors, our purpose in producing this book was to introduce research methods less commonly used but relevant to higher education, whet the readers’ appetites for research, build enthusiasm for the possibilities of research on college campuses, and spur readers to develop their research skills to the fullest possible degree. By employing methods and approaches described here researchers can change the quality and type of research conducted in higher education contexts. Regardless of the method discussed in the chapters, quality, meaningfulness, and ethical practice are of utmost importance. This concluding chapter expounds on those messages of quality, usefulness, and relevance. Here we: (a) revisit the main points of the methodological chapters, (b) review remaining research topics, (c) discuss researchers’ obligations as they report research findings from their privileged positions, and (d) explore the possibilities for contribution to social change that research affords.
