Which methodology is most appropriate for educational research is a question for which many experts have provided often antithetical ideas and approaches. The mixed-methods approach has only recently appeared in the field of educational research as an alternative to the dichotomous vision that contrasts quantitative and qualitative methods. This paper will explore mixed-methods designs in an attempt to provide a framework that can facilitate its use in teaching and educational research.
