  1. The Multilevel Design

    A Guide with an Annotated Bibliography, 1980–1993

    By Harry J. M. Huttner and Pieter van den Eeden.

    Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 1995. 288 pp. $69.50.

    Research that accounts for the nested, hierarchal structure of such educational data (e.g., that classrooms are nested in schools and students are nested in classrooms) is common in generalist research journals. In The Multilevel Design, Harry Huttner and Pieter van den Eeden survey 160 research studies in education that use multilevel analysis as the primary research design. In a carefully constructed annotated bibliography, the authors comment on the studies' findings and methodology.

    The book begins with a brief articulation of the principles of multilevel research, and then discusses the research design in practice. This discussion, with its clear definitions and well-placed examples, provides a helpful context for the bibliographies that follow. In addition to the annotated bibliography on educational research, the authors develop bibliographies for theoretical and methodological issues in multilevel research, applications in voting behavior and deviant behavior and health care, and applications in studies of organizations and studies of spatial contexts. This book is an instructive resource for students of multilevel design, as well as an important source book for experienced researchers.
