Students' General Knowledge of the Learning Process: A Mixed Methods Study Illustrating Integrated Data Collection and Data Consolidation
van Velzen, Joke H.
Journal of Mixed Methods Research, v12 n2 p182-203 Apr 2018
There were two purposes for this mixed methods study: to investigate (a) the realistic meaning of awareness and understanding as the underlying constructs of general knowledge of the learning process and (b) a procedure for data consolidation. The participants were 11th-grade high school and first-year university students. Integrated data collection and data transformation provided for positive but small correlations between awareness and understanding. A comparison of the created combined and integrated new data sets showed that the integrated data set provided for an expected statistically significant outcome, which was in line with the participants' developmental difference. This study can contribute to the mixed methods research because it proposes a procedure for data consolidation and a new research design.
