Types of Studies and Resources for Each

Most research falls into one of three categories: Quantitative, Qualitative, or Mixed Methods.  Select from the accordion below to find out more about each research method and the resources (such as digital tools) that support that type of research. 

  • Qualitative Resources

    Choosing a research method

    See this resource on how to choose a research method.

    Qualitative Data Analysis Software (QDAS) programs

    All of the programs listed allow you to analyze text (or video) by placing chunks into “codes” which capture the main idea or thought. Then you can search for codes you have created, and can organize the codes in a hierarchy (for example, codes "I was happy" and "I was thrilled" can both be placed in a parent code called "elation").
