Have you or your students ever had questions about conceptual frameworks or found that you used different verbiage when discussing conceptual frameworks? This book succinctly explains conceptual frameworks and how they inform all parts of the research process. Ravitch and Riggan include exemplar empirical studies as models to help readers see the new knowledge in action. They also challenge your thinking and verbiage with conceptual frameworks. If you are a current doctoral student or if you are a researcher about to begin an empirical study, this book will help you create a more rigorous study that links all parts of the study with the conceptual framework.
