A Practical Examination of Two Diverse Research Paradigms
Brewer, Robert A.
This manuscript examines the practical differences between quantitative and qualitative inquiry by comparing the differences between one article from each paradigm. Quantitative research differs greatly from qualitative inquiry in purpose, assumptions, methodology, and representation. While quantitative research has been the dominant paradigm for many years, qualitative no longer takes a back seat.
