Researcher as Instrument: Understanding "Shifting" Findings in Constructivist Research
Stewart, Dafina Lazarus
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v47 n3 p291-306 2010
Two studies investigating the meaning and articulation of multiple identities among Black college students revealed shifts in the findings from the 2001 study to the 2005 study. This theoretical review explores the role of the researcher as instrument within the constructivist research paradigm as a possible explanation for some of these apparent differences. Implications and suggestions for researchers and graduate preparation are offered.
