Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being challenged to present a research plan using the mixed methods approach. I have assumed that this is related to a research proposal solution we have worked on earlier as to complete this task - you need to have a research topic to work from. I have assumed therefore that the topic on 'Ben' about schemas has been accepted and you need to explore the mixed methods plan further. As such I suggest using this simple outline:

1. On Mixed Methods and it's challenges - 100 words
2. Procedure & design - 100 words
3. Introduction, purpose, research questions & hypothesis - 150 words

You should be concise when providing #s 2 and 3 as these become the basis for your research. Thus, the more concise you are, the easier it is to operationalise the idea behind them. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.
