data saturation in qualitative research

by Radhe

This is what we are all about.

There are many ways to tackle a research problem. For this project we had a couple of different approaches. Our first idea was to use the same design we use for our own websites for a number of different types of research, such as usability testing, questionnaires, focus groups, and surveys. It worked really well. There were a few design features that we’d always wanted to try out (i.e., the use of a “design by committee” approach).

The only problem we had with this approach was that it didn’t lend itself to qualitative research. In the case of usability testing, all of the participants had to have been interviewed and the data had to be analyzed and interpreted. This meant that we could only really design around a very specific subset of the participants, thus limiting the kinds of questions we could design around. Also, qualitative research is really difficult to study.

We made a few changes to the way we approached usability testing when we did our qualitative studies to deal with the problem of data saturation. For example, we used a sample of up to five people. The problem of data saturation is that you have to get enough people to see something clearly before you have enough people to describe it in a way that is meaningful.

The problem is, you have to get enough people to see something clearly before you have enough people to describe it in a way that is meaningful.

It is a problem, but it’s not a problem.

When we started using qualitative research, we were concerned with data saturation because we did not know what we were doing. We knew we wanted to see whether people would be receptive to the idea of a long-term program for people with disabilities that involved learning new things in a group and then having each participant perform various cognitive tasks within that group. This involved using a variety of methods. But we did not know if we were actually going to get any data from our participants.

The first thing we did was give the participants the opportunity to tell us about their experiences. That allowed us to have a more in-depth conversation about what we were doing, how we were doing it, and what we wanted to see happen with the program. And it also allowed us to see how people might react.

As our data saturation in qualitative research progressed, we noticed that we were finding people who were generally open to conversation about the research as well as people who were much more closed off. When we got to the people who were very closed off, the conversations were really hard because they were so intent on what they wanted to tell us. And as soon as we let them answer, their answers became just a part of the conversation that really didn’t matter.

People got to talk about the research and just sort of read it.
