Week 5: Mixed Method Research Design

To Prepare

Read this week’s Learning Resources on mixed methods designs. Think about how each design sequences and combines quantitative and qualitative approaches to achieve research objectives.
Review your Week 1 through Week 4 Discussions on a quantitative and qualitative research problem, purpose, research question, and theoretical/conceptual framework.
Identify a mixed methods design that would accomplish your quantitative and qualitative research objectives.
Alignment of scenario elements is important. See the Examples of Aligned and Misaligned Scenariosdocument, which can be downloaded from the Week 5 Learning Resources area of the classroom.
Discussion posts are pass/fail but have minimum criteria to pass. See the Discussion Rubric to ensure you understand the pass/fail criteria.
