Mixed Methods Applications in Action Research is a first-of-its-kind book that provides readers with the information they need to design and conduct a mixed methods action research (MMAR) study in a practical and pragmatic manner. Using a multidisciplinary focus, author Nataliya V. Ivankova provides a scholarly and applied orientation to meet the varied epistemological and professional needs of scholar practitioners. The book is applicable to broad audiences with different levels of research skills, including students learning how to conduct research in practical settings, practitioners faced with the need to address pertinent issues in their professional practices, community leaders seeking to inform policy changes, and college faculty who teach research methods and conduct funded research in collaboration with practitioner-researchers and community stakeholders. A wide variety of pedagogical features make it appropriate for use as an instructional text aimed at developing skills in designing, conducting, implementing, and reporting an action research study that integrates mixed methods.
"This author has created what I believe to be a very important body of knowledge and has absolutely moved the topic in a manner that reflects current ways of thinking about research in the 21st century. The research applications presented in the textbook chapters help to make mixed method action research doable in areas that may not be reflected in previous thinking or past instructional methods for teaching research methodology." âJuanita A. Johnson, Union Institute & University
"The scope of the material covered is terrific and the examples are very usefulâ¦ I believe that it would be of great use to anyone who is considering this type of design.âLaura J. Meyer, University of Denver
"Hones in on the complexities, particularities, and needs of practitioner researchers doing action researchâ¦Clearly explains integration for each mixed method type in a way I have not seen before. Figures and boxes [are] once again very valuable, organized, and clear for practitioner-researchers." Â âDebby Zambo, Arizona State University
