Mixed-method research is more than merely combining quantita

Mixed-method research is more than merely combining quantitativeand qualitative research approaches. There are design and analysis issues toconsider. Leech and Onwuegbuzie (2008) offer an array of qualitative analysistechniques that include word count and standard content analysis. How mightthese techniques be perceived by both purely qualitative and purelyquantitative researchers? Do these techniques offer additional evidence of thevalue of mixed-method research, or do they merely add to the confusion overwhich techniques to use?
