Qualitative Methods - produce data with more depth and description
Looks at questions that concern why and/or how
Matches with outcomes about application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation
Examples of qualitative methods: focus group/interview, portfolio, rubric (if descriptive), visual methods, one-minute assessment, open-ended survey question, observation, document analysis, case study
Mixed Methods- assessment is not always completed with just one method
For example, a social responsibility outcome such as “student articulates the unfair, unjust, or uncivil behavior of other individuals or groups,” might best be assessed through interview or focus group and through rating a role play exercise on a rubric.
