Summary
"Offering equal coverage of quantitative and qualitative research, this is an excellent text for graduate students studying mixed methods research in courses such as Research Methods, Research Design, Mixed Methods, and Qualitative Methods across the Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences as well as courses in Education. It is also a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners who want a comprehensive yet practical introduction to mixed methods research design."--BOOK JACKET

There is one "best" paradigm or worldview that fits mixed methods research -- Stance 2. Researchers can use multiple paradigms or worldviews in their mixed methods study -- Stance 3. Worldviews relate to the type of mixed methods design and they may vary depending on the type of design -- The basics of quantitative and qualitative research -- Research problems addressed by mixed methods -- A need exists for both quantitative and qualitative approaches -- A need exists to enhance the study with a second source of data -- A need exists to explain the quantitative results -- A need exists to first explore qualitatively -- Summary -- Activities -- Additional resources to examine -- Locating and reviewing mixed methods studies -- Searching for and reviewing mixed methods studies -- Use search terms -- Are the studies mixed methods research? -- A mixed methods notation system and visual diagrams -- Examples of mixed methods studies -- Study A: Collecting both quantitative and qualitative data at the same time to understand a problem (Jenkins, 2001) -- Study B: Using qualitative data in an experiment (Rogers, Day, Randall & Bentall, 2003) -- Study C: Explaining quantitative results with qualitative data (Aldridge, Fraser & Huang, 1999) -- Study D: Exploring qualitatively to develop a quantitative instrument (Myers & Oetzel, 2003) -- Similarities and differences among the sample studies -- Summary -- Activities -- Additional resources to examine -- Choosing a mixed methods design -- Classifications of mixed methods designs -- The four major types of mixed methods designs -- The triangulation design -- The triangulation design procedures -- Variants of the triangulation design -- Strengths of the triangulation design -- Challenges in using the triangulation design -- The embedded design -- The embedded design procedures -- Variants of the embedded design -- Strengths of the embedded design -- Challenges in using the embedded design -- The explanatory design -- The explanatory design procedures -- Variants of the explanatory design -- Strengths of the explanatory design -- Challenges in using the explanatory design -- The exploratory design -- The exploratory design procedures -- Variants of the exploratory design -- Strengths of the exploratory design -- Challenges in using the exploratory design -- Selecting a type of mixed methods design -- The timing decision -- The weighting decision -- The mixing decision -- Merging data sets -- Embedding data at the design level -- Connecting from data analysis to data collection -- Implementing the design decisions -- Writing a paragraph to identify a study's design -- Summary -- Activities -- Additional resources to examine
