Qualitative Research Comes of Age
Young, Barbara N.
Online Submission, Tennessee Educational Leadership v21 n1 p21-23 Spr 1994
Educational research has changed in the last ten years from "a field that was dominated by measurement, operationalized definitions, variables, hypothesis testing, and statistics" to a research mode that emphasizes "description, induction, grounded theory, and the study of people's understanding. We refer to this approach as "qualitative research." Qualitative research has come of age and is regularly incorporated into many general research courses. This methodology is welcomed as one way to capture the essence of a school, a classroom, and the individuals that interact within these contexts.
