A Framework for Mixing Methods in Quantitative Measurement Development, Validation, and Revision: A Case Study
Luyt, Russell
Journal of Mixed Methods Research, v6 n4 p294-316 Oct 2012
A framework for quantitative measurement development, validation, and revision that incorporates both qualitative and quantitative methods is introduced. It extends and adapts Adcock and Collier's work, and thus, facilitates understanding of quantitative measurement development, validation, and revision as an integrated and cyclical set of procedures best achieved through mixed methods research. It also offers a systematic guide concerning how these procedures may be undertaken through detailing key "stages," "levels," and practical "tasks." A case study illustrates how qualitative and quantitative methods may be mixed through the use of the proposed framework in the cross-cultural content- and construct-related validation and subsequent revision of a quantitative measure. The contribution of this article to mixed methods research literature is briefly discussed. (Contains 5 extracts, 3 tables, and 4 figures.)
