A review of qualitative methods used in a predominantly quantitative evaluation indicated a variety of roles for such a mixing of methods, including framing initial questions and method choices, revising evaluation questions during the inquiry, assessing the validity of measures, assessing adaptations in program implementation, and gauging the proper degree of uncertainty and generalizability of one's conclusions. These functions are considered in light of the stances on mixing paradigms that Greene and Caracelli describe in Chapter One.
