Coded interview sample as an online job task
The coded interview is based on the 5th visit of Maktab School and the interview that I had conducted with teacher with the support of school staff and TLI team at LUMS School of education. There are some of the different values that I had identified in the coded interview assignment which also encounter a very surprising experiences for me which enrich my educational experiences too in this exciting observing school visit.
- One of the first theme that emerged was the teacher teaching experiences, when I had observed the Maktab school while observing the classroom, I had noticed that the teacher was ineffective in teaching mathematics estimation concepts while in interview the teacher demonstrated through response that they have diversified teaching experiences
- I have also noticed while observing the classroom that the teacher have a very limited way of explaining the concept of estimation to the students in mathematics classroom.
- Lesson planning is the extremely component in teaching process, while observing in the classroom, I had noticed that the teacher did not have any lesson planning format whereas while was conducting interviews of the teacher, their response demonstrate that the use to make lesson plan in their teaching process, may be the teacher is expert enough to not take lesson plan in the classroom.
- Student learning plays extremely important role in the teaching process, while observing the classroom and Maktab School, I had noticed that the students were not active in classroom participation while teacher was teaching the concept.
- Teachers training plays extremely huge role in teaching process, I had noticed that the while conducting interview that the teacher had not got any training from teachers and they are extremely ineffective in their teaching approaches when it comes to teaching any particular concepts.
- Moreover, while I was observing in the Maktab school diversified classroom, I had noticed that there were very less number of students in every classroom. I still do not know the reason why they are so less number of students in their classroom. Whether their parents does not like the school or school is not effective in terms of providing quality of education.
- While observing the Maktab School and listening all the interview conversation with the school owner Dr Irfan, really need to think about seriously the educational leadership and management in school context.
- The school lack teaching staff too while observing in the Makhtab school
- So there is the clear differences is highlighted in my school observation file and the interview transcription file while I was doing coding in Nvivo software, I am also attaching a map of this photo with this assignment
In order to conclude, there are some of the differences that I had mentioned above in common values in Maktab schools in terms of the observation of the school and the way teacher interview analysis highlighted above and the way those values were being operationalized was completely different in schools. I extremely feel that the school principal and other coordinating staff must think about educational leadership and management in the school and how effective school can be operationalize rather than thinking about doing something big but you are unable to implement it.
Transcription of an interview: an online job task
On our final day of school observation visit, I had got an opportunity to conduct interview from one teacher, first all, Suniya, me and Shahnila had asked the school supporting staff for our agenda for today assignment that we wanted to conduct interview of three teacher from any grade level. Then the school supporting staff was saying that we had only two teacher available for your interview process, then we had negotiated that we want to conduct interview separately with three teachers, then the school supporting staff was not agreed on us, they were saying that by pointing out one of their office that you three could sit here and conduct interview in a more like small group session. Then they were saying that you can conduct interview from our teachers only 20 minutes not more than that, then we were agreed on it. Moreover, during that negotiating process, I was feeling that why they are feeling so much insecure just for conducting interview process even though we had shared our agenda of assignment regarding interview stuff. Even though TLI team had already informed them about it. Furthermore, the makhtab school owner had already stopped us for her own interview as I do not know the reason that why she was not ready to give us interview because she was busy in other things in Maktab school.
So, I had to plan to conduct the interview of only teacher, we three group member, Saniya, Shahnila and me had started to conduct interview of teacher based on our own questionnaire
The purpose of this interview is to collect information from the teachers as an interview process as a part of our assignment as a school observing course. The interview will take only 1 hour for teacher for each part of the interview, which beings with the close ended as well as opened ended questions. I will be extremely grateful if I could record your interview with your permission as per your request or I can write notes on diary, it’s totally up to you.

Research work: An online job task
How is the application of mixed methods different in the two papers? Describe how qualitative methods are used by Ananthpur, Malik, Rao (2014) as compared to Jha, Rao and Woolcock (2007), and how the use of quantitative methods is different. What are the reasons/logic for these differences? Consider the research problem and questions they are seeking to tackle when you are reflecting on the differences in their approaches.
Application of the mixed method in two research papers and their differences
According to the paper “The anatomy of the failure, an ethnography of a randomized trial to deepen democracy in rural India” by kripa Ananthpur, Kabir Malik and Vijayndra Rao. This paper highlighted the understanding as well as impact of two years efforts to deepen democracy in the poor and arid region of the north Karnataka in south central India. The intervention in this research studies was used as a mixed method design. The survey data was collected over two months on a sample of two hundred villages with half randomly assigned to be treated by intervention. Moreover, Ethnographic method were used to track a 10 percent of subset of quantitative sample over a four-year period. This paper has also demonstrated a methodological contribution to the literature on impact evaluation by combining a randomized control trial (RCT)with an in depth ethnographic research to understand the mechanisms behind the changes in outcome measured by the two round of quantitative surveys. The quantitative data has shown no impact from the intervention. The detailed qualitative data allowed us to unpack the reason why the intervention failed highlighting the role of variation in the quality of facilitation, lack of top down support, and facing the difficulty with confronting the challenges of persistent inequality. However, the qualitative investigation also uncovered subtle treatment effect that are difficult to observe in structured survey. Thus, this paper demonstrates a concerted effort to use thick description to uncover the process of change using careful and detailed qualitative work can add value to standard impact evaluation techniques. The quantitative sample was chosen from among the poorest districts of Karnataka State: Gulbarga, Raichur, Bidar, Davengere and Chitradurga. From these districts the 20 poorest talukas (sub-districts known as blocks in most parts of India) were chosen for the study because they were also selected as “backward” by the Government of India and therefore had access to a large infusion of public funds from the MNREGA and BRGF. The method of analysis for the quantitative data is a difference-in-difference between treatment and control samples, and over the two rounds. In conclusion, this paper had demonstrated the failed intervention that can be revealing if enough effort is put into understanding the mechanism underlying the failure. This paper required a combination of qualitative work that can rigorously test whether the intervention had an impact and an in-depth qualitative work that carefully tracks the process of change instituted by intervention over time. The qualitative analysis can unpack mechanism of change and identify institutional shift that are hard to capture in quantitative data. The survey has the advantage of being able to measure the predictable outcome that have impact that are large enough to be captured by the available units of observation. Moreover, the qualitative investigators can build a strong relationship within the community that allow them to “see” differently and thus captured the insight that a survey interviewer is unable to do. Qualitative and quantitative methods, each have advantages as well as disadvantages. This paper attempts to demonstrate that a careful combination of the two supplements that the limitation of one with the benefits of the other. Both the qualitative and quantitative data reveal considerable improvement over time in the quality of public services, governance, and participation. Moreover, the qualitative analysis is just as seriously as quantitative data and the methods to address the problems of understanding mechanism of change. However, in this case of project evaluated in this paper even larger quantitative sample would probably not have helped. Moreover, this project required a different approach to development that require a reliance on bottom up and top down process and constant experimentation and learning by doing is effective strategy to tackle in it. According to the second article “Governance in the gullies, democratic responsiveness and leadership in Dehli Slums by Saumitra Jha. This study has used ‘‘participatory econometrics’’ to shed some light on the understudied question of the internal governance of slums in Delhi. In-depth qualitative work in four slums selected with a comparative design helped inform the construction of a questionnaire that was administered to a representative sample of households in Delhi slums. This allowed us to check the generalizability of our qualitative findings. In this study, we use both qualitative and quantitative evidence to uncover the strategies developed by the poor of Delhi to access government and services. A central focus of the study is not only to identify the determinants of access to governance networks by slum dwellers, but also to trace the role of informal slum leaders (pradhans) as intermediaries between the formal government and the urban poor. The qualitative evidence draws on interviews and observations carried out in four different slums on intra-community dispute resolution, risk management procedures, and the processes by which leaders gain legitimacy and exert authority. We find that length of tenure, political status, environmental hazards, and migrants’ distance from their home districts all loom large as the drivers of the problems that communities and their leaders invoke. Links to political parties, a proven track record, and claims to a democratic mandate are the primary sources of legitimacy, even when leaders have acquired power through traditional means. Participatory econometrics uses qualitative insights to generate hypotheses whose generalizability can be tested through a broader analysis of quantitative data. Qualitative insights allow for a greater emphasis on the study of process and contextual issues that complement the advantages of quantitative methods in measuring outcomes. The method differs from other mixed approaches by giving an econometric analysis a central role in the exercise and viewing respondents as contributors to the analytical work. Researchers from both qualitative and quantitative traditions are involved in every step of the process, from mixed method data collection to mixed method analysis. Thus, participatory econometrics seeks to GOVERNANCE IN THE GULLIES 231 integrate econometric and qualitative techniques with the spirit of participatory development. The comparative advantage of qualitative approaches is their capacity to shed light on issues pertaining to history, context, and process. In this study, we sought to gain a greater understanding of the social mechanisms underpinning migration decisions; the specific strategies used to integrate into the city, manage collective action problems and relations with formal authorities; and how these changed over time and place. Where the quantitative survey provides more general—and generalizable—insights on the demographic and political characteristics of Delhi slum dwellers, the qualitative evidence—by virtue of the large differences between the slums selected—enabled us to explore in a greater depth the strategies chosen by slum dwellers to survive and advance. The qualitative module highlighted several issues to pursue in the quantitative component. A key theme emphasized the importance of the pradhan in acting both as a facilitator of interaction between slum dwellers and formal government authorities and an intermediary between them.
Overall, in these two papers, it has been highlighted that mixed method had been used. Mixed method is a research methodology for conducting research that involves collecting, analyzing, and integrating quantitative which is also about experiment or surveys and qualitative including focused groups and interviews. The selection of research method is always starting with identifying the research study as well as the aim in the research studies. A mixed method research design always provides researcher an opportunity to develop deeper understanding of the research problems
