Research design and calibration

Week 2 focuses on the design of a QCA study, particularly as regards a) the general orientation of such a study and b) the development of a research model with cases, conditions and an outcome. We will also discuss the so-called c) “calibration” process. With calibration, the researcher scores cases on conditions that might cause an outcome, and on the outcome itself.
