    Qualitative research methods
    Although qualitative research may involve the use of descriptive statistics, more frequently it involves methods that do not usually employ numerical methods; these may include, for example, questionnaires, case studies or content analysis. It is recognized that to have a fuller picture, psychologists may choose to approach their data collection by using more than one method. To achieve this, psychologists can use triangulation to allow for a more credible interpretation of the data that has been collected.

    “The use of evidence from different sources, of different methods of collecting data and of different investigators, where feasible, are all triangulation techniques which enhance credibility.”
    Robson, C (1998), Real World Research, Blackwell, Oxford
    Types of triangulation
    There are four basic types of triangulation.
    • Data triangulation, which involves using different times, locations and participants
    (individuals or groups).
    • Investigator triangulation, which involves using multiple, rather than single observers.
    • Theory triangulation, which involves using theories from more than one
    perspective in the interpretation of the data.
    • Methodological triangulation, which involves using more than one method and
    may consist of within-method or between-method strategies.
    Multiple triangulation involves a combination of the four basic types.
