Five Volume Set

Educational psychology is a broad field characterized by the study of individuals in educational settings and how they develop and learn. It incorporates information from such sub-disciplines such as developmental psychology, human development across the life span, curriculum and instruction, motivation, and measurement and assessment. It has evolved to become a field that increasingly focuses on individual differences without any regard to age thereby leading to interests in topics such as (early) intervention, long distance learning, educational technology, adult education, and theories of human development among others. Neil Salkind has mined the rich and extensive backlist of SAGE education and psychology journals to pull together a collection of almost a 100 articles to be the definitive research resource on education psychology.

Section I: Human Growth and Development focuses on the processes involved in human growth and development including ages and stages of development, different theoretical perspectives and the role and effectiveness of early intervention among other topics.
Section II: Cognition, Learning and Instruction concentrates on the mechanisms, through which individuals learn and retain information.
Section III: Motivation explores why individuals seek out goals and what the mechanisms are that characterize this search as it relates to learning.
Section IV: Measurement, Assessment and Statistics looks at the topics that are critical to understanding individual differences, the growth in the use of computers as assessment tools, qualitative and quantitative methods, statistical techniques and evaluation.
