Quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method approaches

  1. 1.  All the data collected will be counted/quantified  Aim: to approve/disprove a hypothesis. A hypothesis should be in a form of question  Advantage: It’s an efficient method of gathering information  Disadvantage: It doesn’t explain the question of ‘why?’
  2. 2.  The data collected are non-numerical and gathered to be analyzed in-depth, not to be quantified  Aim: to answer a research question  Advantage: Contextual information is gathered, and thus, reasons of why phenomena happen can be explained and explored  Disadvantage: Time consuming
  3. 3.  Combination of both  Advantage: balancing efficient data collection and in-depth analysis with the data that provides context  Challenge: researchers need to make sure that the two data are complement to each other and not duplicative
  4. 4.  Creswell, J. W. (2013). Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches (4th ed.). Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.  Maxwell, J. A. (2012). Qualitative research design: An interactive approach (3rd ed.). Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.  Smith, R. A., & Davis, S. F. (2012). The psychologist as detective: An introduction to conducting research in psychology (6th ed.). London: Pearson.
