Bennett, Elisabeth E. – International Journal of Adult Vocational Education and Technology, 2016
Since the first publication by Glaser and Strauss in 1967, Grounded Theory has become a highly influential research approach in the social sciences. The approach provides techniques and coding strategies for building theory inductively from the "ground up" as concepts within the data earn relevance into an evolving substantive theory.…

Jopke, Nikolaus; Gerrits, Lasse – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
There is a need to improve the ways in which Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) handles qualitative data. To this end, we propose to include ideas and routines from Grounded Theory (GT) in QCA. We will first argue that there is a natural fit between the two on the ontological level. On the methodological level, we will demonstrate in what ways…

Store, Jessie Chitsanzo – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
In response to students' difficulties with algebra, many have advocated for algebraic thinking in elementary schools as a route to algebra. However, many studies show students' difficulties with algebraic thinking and teachers' challenges with creating a context that supports reasoning. This article presents a constructivist-grounded theory of…

Braganza, Morgan; Akesson, Bree; Rothwell, David – Journal of Teaching in Social Work, 2017
Grounded theory is a popular methodological approach in social work research, especially by doctoral students conducting qualitative research. The approach, however, is not always used consistently or as originally designed, compromising the quality of the research. The aim of the current study is to assess the quality of recent Canadian social…

McGill, Craig M. – NACADA Journal, 2021
The role of academic advising in higher education remains largely misunderstood by university stakeholders, faculty and staff, students, and academic advisors.

Hoddy, Eric T. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Whilst critical realism (CR) is becoming recognised as a significant meta-theory for the social sciences, there is little guidance on how to produce research which is consistent with its ontological and epistemological assumptions. This article contributes to an emerging discussion about how CR can be applied, drawing on an example of a…
