The Integration of Survey Research and Field Work: Contributions to Data Collection.
Sieber, Sam D.
Two distinct traditions have developed around the two leading methods of social research, i.e., surveys and field work. Because of the rivalry between the proponents of these two methods, there has been little opportunity to explore the advantages of combining them in a single project. Most sociological research either utilizes a single method of investigation or assigns a second to an extremely weak role. Examples from the literature and from the author's own research demonstrate how the interplay of the two methods may greatly improve design, data collection, and analysis. Educational research has been notoriously weak in both of these methods, placing greater emphasis on experimental designs and tests and measurements. (Author)
