Research Final

True or False - Qualitative studies have both independent and dependent variables FALSE - Qualitative studies DO NOT have independent and dependent variables
Steps in the Qualitative Process 1. Planning the Study 2. Develop data collection 3. Gathering and analyzing data 4. Disseminating findings
Gatekeeper The person who helps you gain access to the people you with to study in qualitative research
Bricolage Merging various data collection strategies (interviewing, intensive reflection, introspection)
Emergent Ongoing analysis guiding design decisions
Phenomenology Researcher seeks to describe an experience as it is lived by the person, such as describing a person experiencing the death of a spouse
Sampling in Grounded Theory Typically involves samples of 20-40 people, selection of participants who can best contribute to emerging theory (usually theoretical sampling)
Sampling in Phenomenology Relies on very small samples (often 10 or fewer) Participants must have experienced phenomenon of interest
Ethnography Mingling with many members of the culture - a "big net" approach. Informal conversations with 25 to 50 informants. Multiple interviews with smaller number of key informants
Disconfirming Cases Select new cases that do not fit; challenge the researcher's interpretations
Sampling Confirming Select additional cases for study that fit the researcher's conceptualizations; strengthens the credibility
Criterion Sampling select cases based upon a predetermined criterion that is important for the study
Typical case sampling select cases who are typical or average
Extreme/deviant case sampling select cases which are unusual or extreme
Maximum Variation Sampling select cases who vary in a wide range on a particular dimension of interest
Purposive Sampling Hand-picking subjects for sample because they have special characteristics
Examples of types of purposive sampling in qualitative research maximum variation sampling, extreme/deviant case sampling, typical case sampling
Theoretical Sampling preferred in grounded theory research, selecting sample members who best facilitate and contribute to development of the emerging theory
