Dedy N. Hidayat




Abstract


In general, the difference between qualitative and quantitative research can be seen from the characteristics of data used (measured versus observed), data collection methods (structured interview versus in-depth interview, participant observation), and clearly, from the method of analysis. Example is quantitative research with quantitative guidance (level of significance in hypothesis measuring, factor analysis in creating construct validity estimation of a variable measuring, and so on). Indeed, we need to analyze some of the questions related with the differing between both, that include: do all qualitative research are researches which emphasized in subjectivity and reflexivity? Do all qualitative research emergent or exploratory in nature? Do all qualitative research ideographic in nature? Isn’t there one research that nomothetic? How about the results found using proposition from the perspective of social construction of reality? Some of the answers from the questions above will be discussed in this article.
