Quantitative vs. Qualitative Research

The qualitative approach to research involves the  collection of extensive amounts of narrative and written data in order  to gain insight into an event, occurrence, strategy, or phenomenon.  Quantitative research involves the collection of numerical measurement  data in order to explain, predict, or control the interest area of  research.

Under what conditions would a person choose the  qualitative approach over the quantitative or vice versa when  investigating a forensic behavioral science situation? When would a  mixed-methods design be the best option? Through your research provide  examples and support for the points you are making.

Review the points of others and add additional examples, challenging a response or drawing conclusions from the response.

Post your responses in a minimum of 300 words.

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.
