Peer Effects and Peer Group Processes: Joining the Conversation on Quantitative and Qualitative Methods.
Nash, Roy
Australian Journal of Education, v46 n1 p6-18 Jun 2002
Discusses quantitative and qualitative approaches in research on peer effects on student attainment, using two texts to argue that the definition of "effect" cannot be restricted to "statistical effect," and that institutional properties are not the sum of individual properties. Asserts that quantitative investigators have statistical effects that need a description of causes, while qualitative researchers have processes looking for effects. (EV)
