This form will help you define all the components to generate the graphical representation of an exploratory sequential mixed methods research design. After filling out this form, you will receive an email with the generated graphical representation in pdf, as well as a permanent link to modify your design when necessary. You can see an example of the final result of the process in the following link:
An exploratory sequential mixed methods research design is the reverse sequence from the explanatory sequential design. In the exploratory sequential approach the researcher first begins with a qualitative research phase and explores the views of participants. The data are then analyzed, and the information used to build into a second, quantitative phase. The qualitative phase may be used to build an instrument that best fits the sample under study, to identify appropriate instruments to use in the follow-up quantitative phase, or to specify variables that need to go into a follow-up quantitative study. Particular challenges to this design reside in focusing in on the appropriate qualitative findings to use and the sample selection for both phases of research.
