The perfect combination—a textbook and a reader by John W. Creswell and Vicki Plano Clark—available for only $76.95 as a bundle! Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research combines the latest thinking about mixed methods research designs with practical, step-by-step guidelines for the decisions that must be made in designing a mixed methods research study. "Mixed methods research" is defined as a procedure for collecting, analyzing, and mixing both quantitative and qualitative data in a single case study or series of studies and is becoming more common in studies across the social, behavioral, and health sciences as well as education. The Mixed Methods Reader is divided into two parts: Part I – Methodological Selections and Part II – Exemplar Research Studies. Part I includes a collection of 14 foundational writings from the mixed methods research literature. These readings convey the overall development and evolution of mixed methods research and address essential topics for researchers new to the field of mixed methods research. These topics include its foundations; design types; implementation issues such as sampling, data analysis, and validity; rhetorical devices for reporting mixed methods studies; and critiques about the current thinking in the field. Part II includes 9 exemplar mixed methods research studies drawn from a range of disciplines and international scholars. The studies were intentionally selected to illustrate four major types of mixed methods designs. As with the methodological chapters, the editors organize the exemplar research studies so that the reader can see a natural progression of the different approaches to conducting mixed methods research.

Das Handbuch ist das erste im deutschen Sprachraum, in dem qualitative und quantitative Methoden gleichberechtigt dargestellt werden und in dem systematisch nach Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschieden hinsichtlich Problemen, Prinzipien, Vorgehensweisen, Standards und Gütekriterien für beide Forschungstraditionen gefragt wird. Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, diskutieren ausgewiesene Experten in 88 Beiträgen den aktuellen Stand der Forschung und bieten Forschenden, Lehrenden und Studierenden einen detaillierten Überblick über die verschiedenen Methoden der empirischen Sozialforschung. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Datenerhebung, also auf standardisierten und offenen Befragungen, aber es werden auch viele weitere aktuell verwendete Datentypen vorgestellt.

The research process in this book begins with identification of the research question and proceeds through each step including planning data collection, actual collection and analysis of the data, and writing the report. This text proceeds through multiple methodologies including experimental and non-experimental, quantitative and qualitative. At every step the emphasis is on planning and executing the study. Key features: o Simulations and feedback that may be used in class sessions for both individual and small group participation o Pedagogy to help students plan and conduct a research project in an actual classroom o Examples that demonstrate and explain what constitutes good and poor research questions o Case studies and ′real life′ examples related to education o A Student Web site that provides students with the opportunity to interact with contemporary articles. This book provides an introduction to research that emphasizes the fundamental concepts of planning and design. It is designed to be a core text for the very first course on research methods.

Mixed Methods Applications in Action Research is a first-of-its-kind book that provides readers with the information they need to design and conduct a mixed methods action research (MMAR) study in a practical and pragmatic manner. Using a multidisciplinary focus, author Nataliya V. Ivankova provides a scholarly and applied orientation to meet the varied epistemological and professional needs of scholar practitioners. The book is applicable to broad audiences with different levels of research skills, including students learning how to conduct research in practical settings, practitioners faced with the need to address pertinent issues in their professional practices, community leaders seeking to inform policy changes, and college faculty who teach research methods and conduct funded research in collaboration with practitioner-researchers and community stakeholders. A wide variety of pedagogical features make it appropriate for use as an instructional text aimed at developing skills in designing, conducting, implementing, and reporting an action research study that integrates mixed methods. “This author has created what I believe to be a very important body of knowledge and has absolutely moved the topic in a manner that reflects current ways of thinking about research in the 21st century. The research applications presented in the textbook chapters help to make mixed method action research doable in areas that may not be reflected in previous thinking or past instructional methods for teaching research methodology.” —Juanita A. Johnson, Union Institute & University ”The scope of the material covered is terrific and the examples are very useful… I believe that it would be of great use to anyone who is considering this type of design.—Laura J. Meyer, University of Denver “Hones in on the complexities, particularities, and needs of practitioner researchers doing action research…Clearly explains integration for each mixed method type in a way I have not seen before. Figures and boxes [are] once again very valuable, organized, and clear for practitioner-researchers.” —Debby Zambo, Arizona State University

In diesem Band werden method(olog)ische Fragen der qualitativen Bildungsforschung diskutiert, die erst im Forschungsprozess sichtbar werden. Am Beispiel konkreter Forschungsprojekte werden übergreifende forschungspraktische Probleme und Möglichkeiten ihrer Bearbeitung expliziert. Dabei werden die Potenziale und Grenzen etablierter methodischer Zugänge und Verfahren ausgelotet, projektspezifische Relationierungen von Erkenntnisinteresse, Methodologie und methodischem Zugang skizziert und metho(dolog)ische Modifikationen vorgeschlagen. Forschungspraxis wird dabei als Prozess von Entscheidungen und deren Begründungen sichtbar.

Das Buch führt anhand konkreter Vorgehensweisen in die Diskussion und Praxis der Triangulation ein. Es zeichnet Ursprung und Geschichte des Konzepts sowie kritische Diskussionen nach. Triangulation sollte sich nicht in der reinen Verbindung von Methoden erschöpfen. Erst in der Verknüpfung deren theoretischer Hintergründe entfaltet sie ihr Potential. An praktischen Beispielen wird die Triangulation verschiedener qualitativer und von qualitativen mit quantitativen Methoden dargestellt. Ausgewählte Studien mit diesen Formen werden vorgestellt, um die Beurteilung des Nutzens und des Aufwandes von Triangulation zu erleichtern. Praktische Durchführungsprobleme von Triangulationsstudien werden als Leitfaden für Studierende behandelt. Die Bedeutung von Triangulation als Kriterium qualitativer Forschung, in der Verallgemeinerung und als Mittel der Erkenntnis wird an ihrer Verwendung in den unterschiedlichen Schritten des Forschungsprozesses verdeutlicht.
