Konfliktmediation ist sowohl in Nordamerika als auch in Europa ein vergleichsweise junges Praxisfeld, das erst in den 1980er und 1990er Jahren schrittweise einer sozialwissenschaftlichen Erforschung zugeführt worden ist. Naturgemäß wird diese Forschung häufig von Autoren geleistet, die dem Projekt der Konfliktmediation nicht nur wissenschaftlich, sondern auch mit eigenen Praxiserfahrungen nahestehen, so dass sich Synergie-Effekte, aber auch Rollenüberschneidungen und -unklarheiten ergeben können, die für die Durchführung wissenschaftlicher Studien hinderlich sein kann. Der vorliegende Sammelband diskutiert Chancen und Grenzen sowie mögliche Erträge einer sozialwissenschaftlichen Erforschung von Konfliktmediation. Ausgewählte Autoren leisten dies in Form von Beiträgen, die jeweils eine Forschungsmethode aus dem Bereich der qualitativen Sozialforschung von Grund auf vorstellen und ihre Anwendung einschließlich Vor- und Nachteilen auf eine Erforschung von Konfliktmediation an exemplarischen Überlegungen veranschaulichen. ​

In an era of curricular changes and experiments and high-stakes testing, educational measurement and evaluation is more important than ever. In addition to expected entries covering the basics of traditional theories and methods, other entries discuss important sociopolitical issues and trends influencing the future of that research and practice. Textbooks, handbooks, monographs and other publications focus on various aspects of educational research, measurement and evaluation, but to date, there exists no major reference guide for students new to the field. This comprehensive work fills that gap, covering traditional areas while pointing the way to future developments. Features: Nearly 700 signed entries are contained in an authoritative work spanning four volumes and available in choice of electronic and/or print formats. Although organized A-to-Z, front matter includes a Reader’s Guide grouping entries thematically to help students interested in a specific aspect of education research, measurement, and evaluation to more easily locate directly related entries. (For instance, sample themes include Data, Evaluation, Measurement Concepts & Issues, Research, Sociopolitical Issues, Standards.) Back matter includes a Chronology of the development of the field; a Resource Guide to classic books, journals, and associations; and a detailed Index. Entries conclude with References/Further Readings and Cross References to related entries. The Index, Reader’s Guide themes, and Cross References will combine to provide robust search-and-browse in the e-version.
