A quantitative study can be based on an experimental design, where treatment is administered to one group and then compared to a control group. A qualitative study can be based on participants’ answers to interview questions. And a mixed methods study may have elements of both, applied to the same group of participants sequentially. With any methodology, the design must adhere to the requirements in the appropriate checklist. This week, you examine a doctoral study and evaluate it based on the correct checklist.
