Welcome to the public wiki 'Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool'


Aim of this WIKI: To enable collaborative work for developing a Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool (MMAT).


The MMAT is intended to be used as a checklist for concomitantly appraising and/or describing studies included in systematic mixed studies reviews (reviews including original qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods studies).


The MMAT was first published in 2009. Since then, it has been validated in several studies testing its interrater reliability, usability and content validity. The latest version of the MMAT was updated in 2018. 


For instance, you may state that the Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool is:

  • Designed for systematic reviews that include qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods studies;
  • Efficient as it allows to use one tool for concomitantly appraising the most common types of empirical studies;
  • Addressing the quality of mixed methods studies (appraisal of qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods components);
  • Based on a constructionist theory and a literature review;
  • Content validated using feedback from experts and workshops;
  • Pilot tested for reliability;
  • Already used worldwide for at least 100 systematic mixed studies reviews (to our knowledge). 


Before using the MMAT, we suggest that you look at the FAQ section.
