Understanding Research Methods to Study African American Males in College
Lewis, Cameron L.
Journal of Negro Education, v85 n1 p3-15 Win 2016
This review explores the recent research methods used to understand the transitional experiences of African American males in college. Qualitative studies have been prevalent in recent research, focusing on understanding the social, interpersonal, and intrapersonal experiences of Black males. Quantitative studies show a trend to measure rates of Black males' satisfaction with their college experience on the basis of grades, support, and identity. Further research should increase the utilization of quantitative research methods in order to better balance both qualitative and quantitative practice, as well as to bolster exploration on the college experiences of African American males. The terms 'Black' and 'African American' are used interchangeably throughout this text.
