Research Methods Comparison
In a Microsoft Word document, create a simple 2-column table to compare mixed-methods research, action research, and design science research. In the first row, identify a research focus that could be used for all three methods.
In the following 4 rows, draw comparisons between the 3 research approaches for 4 criteria: (1) research traditions, (2) sampling methods, (3) data collection methods, and (4) data analysis methods.
Following the table, offer a full paragraph summary to define how and why each approach may be best to address the research focus.
