    Abstract

    The application of mixed methods under the framework of theory-driven evaluations can minimize the potential tension and conflict of mixing qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as compensate for each method's weaknesses. Mixed methods should not be applied indiscriminantly, however, but rather contingently under particular conditions as described in this chapter.
