Quantitative Primary Research

-Research has a methods section that describes how data was collected (choose an article that states “randomized controlled” trial or study in the methods section)

-Uses observations or survey/questionnaire to collect data

-Results are numbers

-No mention of mixed methods, quality improvement project or pilot or protocol or feasibility or cost benefit analyses

-Primary research because the researcher collected the data used in the article directly (information can not be from another source like hospital records, databases, insurance claims, past publications, information collected in the past, or information that was not solely collected for the purpose of the research)

Qualitative Primary Research

-Research has a methods section that describes how data was collected

-Primarily uses interviews and/or focus groups only to collect data (talking)

-Results are words and themes from the talking collected

– No mention of mixed methods, quality improvement project or pilot or protocol or feasibility or cost benefit analyses

-Primary research because the researchers conducted the interviews and/or focus group
