Qualitative methods

Qualitative methods

In this section you will explore qualitative methods in research. Different from quantitative, but still very valuable, especially in education studies, qualitative methods are often used to collect data that cannot be quantified, such as how humans react to a situation. Qualitative studies rely on information subjects share with the researcher and are often longer and more involved to assure the collection of data is accurate.
