Case Study Research in Quantitative and Qualitative Research Concepts

this chapter in this doctoral etext for Grand Canyon University doctoral students is a high-level discussion of case study research, in both quantitative and qualitative case study research with definitions, explanations and examples for doctoral students to use as a guideline for their own studies.

Abstract: 

The purpose of this chapter is to understand the many variations of case study research as a method and a design in psychological research. According to Shaughnessy, Zechmeister, and Zechmeister (2012), “a case study is an intensive description and analysis of a single individual” (p. 447). Further reading of this chapter will enhance this statement. Theorists and experts on case study research assume a variety of positions regarding what case study research is. In contrast to Shaughnessy et al. (2012), Punch (2014) offered that a case study is a research strategy “which focuses on the in-depth, holistic, and in-context study” (p. 347) of one or several cases that are typically multiple sources of data.
