Mixed method frameworks- adopted reading supporting student progress in this complex area of research- excellent for first time mixed method researchers
Provides an excellent tool for students preparing to conduct their research
Very useful for dissertation students who are contemplating mixed measures. Have recommended this for use within CYP, Health and Education.
In my view this is a very well structured book that provides students, who are not familiar with mixed methods, with useful guidelines regarding the process of undertaking such research. I have already introduced it to those of my postgraduate students who are planning to do a study using mixed methods and will continue to do so next semester.
This very clear & structured approach to research methods will be a useful addition to early career researchers and students undertaking dissertations.
A thouroughly enjoyable book in advocating this mixed method style of research. The book is well organised and clearly written. Simply arranged which takes the reader to the relevant aspects of undertaking this approach to research which is becoming more and more prominent in dissertations.
I thought this was an interesting text offering a different perspective on mixed methods. and how this approach can be used in priamry research
A valuable addition to our reading lists.
This is a current and readable text which will help anyone undertaking educational research.
I have no hesitation in recommending it to learners, and I will be using it myself when I undertake my Doctorate.
The chapters are logical and the topics explained well, with examples and case studies. The ‘summaries’ help put theory into practice.
There is a very comprehensive reference list, subject index and name index. The latter being really useful to quickly locate sources of reference.
This is a clear guide for students undertaking dissertation.
