Abstract:

This case study explains what a sequential, mixed methods research design is and why it was used in a research study that aimed to increase access to primary schooling for students in high HIV prevalence areas of Malawi. At the start of the study, secondary data from literature reviews and primary data from qualitative interviews, focus group discussions, and participatory activities were integrated to identify barriers to learning for these students and ways to overcome them. An intervention program was then developed to increase access to learning and students identified as being "at-risk" of dropping out of school were recruited onto this program for one school year. During this year, quantitative data on school attendance, achievement, grade repetition, and school dropout were collected and analyzed statistically to find out whether these students had benefited from the intervention. At the end of the intervention, qualitative data were collected, as before, to help explain these results. This case study demonstrates that a sequential, mixed methods design can be used to integrate the findings from qualitative and quantitative data so that the collective strength provides a better understanding of the research problem than either type of data on its own, and to provide strong evidence that vulnerable students can substantially benefit from additional support for learning.
