Mapping Mixed Methods Research: Methods, Measures, and Meaning
Wheeldon, J.
Journal of Mixed Methods Research, v4 n2 p87-102 2010
This article explores how concept maps and mind maps can be used as data collection tools in mixed methods research to combine the clarity of quantitative counts with the nuance of qualitative reflections. Based on more traditional mixed methods approaches, this article details how the use of pre/post concept maps can be used to design qualitative interviews. As a more novel contribution, this article also explores how qualitative participant-generated mind maps can be used in multistage data collection to develop a mixed methods "salience score." Although in many ways preliminary, this approach offers an initial means to consider on what basis a mixed methods measure could be conceived. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
