Sakata, Nozomi; Oketch, Moses; Candappa, Mano – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This paper offers a critical analysis of the Comparative Case Study (CCS). While CCS provides a holistic methodological framework for case-based research, it is not free from drawbacks. One criticism the approach may receive, ironically, is the lack of criticism it encounters. Another critique can include its naming, as the name 'comparative case…

Prevett, Pauline S.; Black, Laura; Hernandez-Martinez, Paul; Pampaka, Maria; Williams, Julian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
A novel approach to integrating Cluster Analysis (CA) within qualitative inquiry is presented, grounded in a large, unstructured dataset from open and rather unstructured interviews. This dataset was previously subjected to typical (theory sensitive) thematic analyses. Transformed into quantitative binary matrix structures, the CA offers…

Ramlo, Susan E. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Within mixed methods research, a key issue is how to mix qualitative and quantitative research orientations. Similar debates arise within a mixed method called Q methodology [Q] that has an 80-year history and strong qualitative leanings. Q is often identified with the sorting of statements and the factor analysis (grouping) of people with similar…

Rapanta, Chrysi; Felton, Mark – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This integrative literature review takes up the ongoing discussion about the place of mixed methods designs in educational research. We focus on studies that investigate the role of argumentation in inquiry-based learning, either as a means for enhancing inquiry (argument-based inquiry) or as a learning outcome (inquiry-based argument). We argue…

Creamer, Elizabeth; Edwards, Cherie – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Little attention has been paid to the processes that are involved in making sense of the role dissonance between sources of data has played in the development of theoretical insight. This methodologically oriented investigation considers an unusual set of case exemplars that used mixed methods and dialogic forms of mixing in ways that produced…

McChesney, Katrina; Aldridge, Jill – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
A recurring debate in mixed methods research involves the relationship between research methods and research paradigms. Whereas some scholars appear to assume that qualitative and quantitative research methods each necessarily belong with particular research paradigms, others have called for greater flexibility and have taken a variety of stances…

Poth, Cheryl – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Educational research teams are increasingly recognized as an optimal configuration for addressing more complex mixed methods research problems; however, their development is often approached as a conventional research collaboration rather than an integrative one. An approach informed by complexity theory provides the practical guidance for…

Cronenberg, Stephanie; Headley, Marcia Gail – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
A multiplicity of perspectives and methods are necessary to investigate the complexities of human development and educational institutions. However, many would-be MM researchers still have questions about how to conceptualize and conduct MM research. Taking a dialectic stance, or mixing research approaches to suit the demands of a research…

Werler, Tobias Christoph; Baraldsnes, Dziuginta – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This paper explores the historic ideas and practice of outdoor education, as developed in Jean Jacques Rousseau's "Émile", and realized by Adolf Reichwein's rural teaching practice. We aimed at developing a comprehensive research design, triangulating different qualitative data (text and photos). In the paper, we explore how the idea of…

Bokhove, Christian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This article reports on an exploratory project in which technology and dynamic social network analysis (SNA) are used for modelling classroom interaction. SNA focuses on the links between social actors, draws on graphic imagery to reveal and display the patterning of those links, and develops mathematical and computational models to describe and…

von der Fehr, Ane; Sølberg, Jan; Bruun, Jesper – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Social network analysis (SNA) has been used in many educational studies in the past decade, but what these studies have in common is that the populations in question in most cases are defined and known to the researchers studying the networks. Snowball sampling is an SNA methodology most often used to study hidden populations, for example, groups…

Heyvaert, Mieke; Deleye, Maarten; Saenen, Lore; Van Dooren, Wim; Onghena, Patrick – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
When studying a complex research phenomenon, a mixed methods design allows to answer a broader set of research questions and to tap into different aspects of this phenomenon, compared to a monomethod design. This paper reports on how a sequential equal status design (QUAN ? QUAL) was used to examine students' reasoning processes when solving…

Bourke, Roseanna; MacDonald, Jo – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Evaluation research focusing on educational initiatives that impact on the learning and lives of young people must be challenged to incorporate 'student voice'. In a context of conventional evaluation models of government-led initiatives, student voice is a compelling addition, and challenges the nature of traditional forms of evaluation. It…

CohenMiller, A. S.; Faucher, Carole; Hernández-Torrano, Daniel; Brown Hajdukova, Eva – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
This article adds to the dialogue on multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research, providing definitions and practical steps for using interdisciplinary educational research to enhance cultural awareness. Informed by a research study conducted by seven primary researchers situated in the U.K. and Kazakhstan, along with local partners, we…

Lee, Dabae; Arthur, Ian T.; Morrone, Anastasia S. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2017
The use of video surveillance footage presents a new possibility in educational research as a reliable and valid source of learning and teaching activities in classrooms. However, the unique nature of surveillance footage requires different approaches and poses distinctive challenges in utilizing it in research, yet no methodological guides are…
