As we have learned throughout this course, quantitative techniques focus on breadth and generalizability, while qualitative techniques focus on depth and targeting specific and sometimes limited populations.Instructions:Using the articles you found throughout this course, compare and contrast the overall Methods section format of quantitative studies versus qualitative studies in general.

  • How is the write-up of qualitative studies the same or different from the write-up of quantitative studies with respect to the data collection and data analyses sections?
  • How are the write-ups the same or different with respect to the participant selection sections?
  • Be sure to support your discussion with specific examples.
  • Which style do you find yourself drawn to most and why?

Your post should be at least 300 words.
