Multidimensional Education Research: Managing Multiple Data Streams
We discuss collecting data simultaneously from many different instruments, including both qualitative and quantitative sources. A list of instruments used is provided, and data collection methods are described. Many practical logistical concerns are discussed, warning of potential pitfalls to be avoided. This article is intended to be a practical guide for other research groups wishing to use data from multiple sources, especially if they have not collected qualitative data before.
