Welcome to the public wiki 'Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool'

 

Please invite others to use this workspace. Comments and suggestions can be added at the bottom of each page (free comment box). 

 

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).

 

New complementary information for designing, conducting, and reporting systematic mixed studies reviews: 

Wikitool: http://toolkit4mixedstudiesreviews.pbworks.com

Publication: Pluye, P. & Hong, Q.N. (2014). Combining the power of stories and the power of numbers: Mixed Methods Research and Mixed Studies Reviews. Annual Review of Public Health, 35, 29-45. Complimentary online access:  http://arjournals.annualreviews.org/eprint/qFxpDWrNzjzwjfkgtd4V/full/10.1146/annurev-publhealth-032013-182440 (Note from the journal: ‘Multiple distribution, publication or commercial usage of this copyrighted material requires submission of a permission request addressed to the Copyright Clearance Center (http://www.copyright.com/)').

 

The MMAT is a tool in constant development, and must be used with caution. The development of the MMAT is supported by a project called ‘Content Validity, Usability and Reliability of a Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool (MMAT)’ (including workshops, presentations and fellowship/prize/grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research - CIHR).

 

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). 

 

Current version: The 2011 version of the MMAT is available here (criteria and tutorial)
