Words, words, and more words. Qualitative methods part 1.


Continuing our investigation of research methods, we will turn to the opposite side of the spectrum—qualitative methods. Like our quantitative counterpart, we will discuss different forms of qualitative data and designs, as well as the types of questions/problems we can address through qualitative data. We will also briefly discuss how to analyze qualitative data and interpret findings.
