New Scholarship in Critical Quantitative Research, Part 1 synopsis
This volume presents work focusing on underrepresented people at a variety of levels of higher education. Each researcher used quantitativecritical approaches to examine access and / or success in the field of higher education.
Their study pushes the limits of what we know by questioning prevailing notions of higher education through: * Examining policies * Reframing theories and metrics * Re-examining traditional questions of non-traditional populations.
