"Cross and Steadman defiantly fling open the doors of our closed-classroom culture.... Classroom Research continues the Jossey-Bass tradition of well-made books." --Faculty Development

"For the devoted college teacher, Classroom Research is a guidebook on how to become a classroom researcher. And, for those who are interested in teaching and learning as an academic interest, Cross and Steadman have taken a difficult topic and developed a useful resource not only on how to develop hypotheses and investigate how students learn, but on the research literature in various realms of student learning." --Tronie Rifkin, assistant director, ERIC Clearinghouse for Community Colleges, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles, J.
