Quantitative and Qualitative Research
Quantitative Research
The purpose of quantitative research is to test a hypothesis related to educational theories.
Usage
Qualitative research is more commonly used by educators because when conducting action research, they then rely on qualitative data collection methods. This is "because they are interested in the contextual variables in their settings and the ways in which context influences the outcomes of their studies" (Hendricks, 2009). Educators also use quantitative data, but that is just one source analyzed with the qualitative data.
