"The go-to text for mixed methods research.”
“Readers of the book will understand the expanding breadth of multiple methods, the value of complex methods for sophisticated analysis of problems, and how to use and evaluate mixed methods in research.”
“Creswell and Plano Clark have captured recent changes within mixed methods research, and these are reflected in this dynamic, salient book!”
“An excellent guide for the design and conduct of mixed methods research!”
“This updated edition provides thoughtful consideration to how the field of mixed methods research has changed, including how the authors' own definitions and typologies have refined. It also provides a discussion of a diverse array of empirical studies from prominent and emerging mixed methods scholars, highlighting the strength and potential of this field for social and behavioral sciences.”
“Creswell and Plano Clark do excellent work in showing the evolution of mixed-methods research. One of the highlights of this edition is the addition of scaffolds that guide writing sections of a mixed-methods study.”
“Narrowing down the research methods to three primary types and then providing application methods and basic step-by-step instructions, along with great resources in the appendix and outside contributions, makes this a must have book in any academic study leading to research development.”
Comprehensive and clear text. Easy for students to follow. Great initial methodology text.
A comprehensive presentation of the mixed method design offering a well-balanced discussion of both qualitative and quantitative approaches that is also sustained by a good selection of examples and suggested readings.
Great overview of mixed methods research. I am using it to facilitate my course in mixed methods in Spring 2021.
This book is a great resources, but requires a moderate level of comfort with both quantitative and qualitative methods upon reading. For readers that have at least an introductory level of these prerequisites, this book is a valuable tool for constructing, implementing, and analysing high-quality mixed methods research. As a researcher, I will use this book to guide myself in best practices as I develop my mixed methodology skills, but I am not confident using this in an introductory course where students may not have concrete knowledge of qual. and quan. basics.
