Instruction: please use APA style and in test citation,
Now that you are engaged in your final project and have completed exceptional discussion throughout this semester, your final task is to tackle a mixed methods study. A great many of you noted in your critique that you would have chosen to move forward with a mixed methods design. Here is your opportunity to decide if you like how this researcher utilized the method, how it was reported and the applicability of the findings. In your initial post, please address the following questions:
- Does this method measure well what was intended?
- Is it reported in a way that the information is clear and usable?
- What would you do differently?
Rationale: While mixed methods studies are valuable, they are more work than selecting a qualitative or quantitative approach and, thus, are not undertaken as frequently. It is important to be exposed to and critically evaluate this type of research. When it is done well, it is very informative, but given the additional coordination and analyses, there is more of a risk that it will be underutilized or reported.
