Abstract

When researchers propose a mixed methods study, most of them think of mixed methods as a parallel or sequential use of qualitative and quantitative approaches to data collection and analysis, while the 'more adventurous' (Bazeley, 2003a; p. 387) refer to a full integration of these two approaches. We believe that Bazeley (2003a) and Fielding and Schreier (2001) offer a useful framework for thinking about mixed methods research. They suggest two approaches to mixed methods - a basic approach to method combination and 'hybrid' or inherently integrated methods. This chapter follows that framework and first outlines a basic qualitative - quantitative design where both components remain as two separate components in the mixed methods research. The discussion then moves to explain a full integration of the methods which can occur on a number of levels and is facilitated by the use of computer software (Bazeley, 2006).
