This set of assumptions guide the research process: by the formulation of the research question and the methods for collecting and analysing data (Maykut & Morehouse, 1994, chapter 2). The research examines social skills interventions that were implemented in a school setting, based on the effectiveness of technology used in the school. In cases where studies involved multiple settings such as the home and school, only the data for the involvements that took place in the school setting were analysed for this study. 3.1.3 Validity and Reliability mixed method data collection strategies have been employed to validate one form of data with the other form, to transform the data for comparison, or to address different types of questions (Creswell & Plano Clark 2007: 118). In many cases the same individuals provide both qualitative and quantitative data so that
