Quiz 3: Qualitative Research Methods

Psychology

Participant observation. The pseudopatients (including the author) infiltrated a psychiatric hospital and played the part of a patient. The observers became part of the group being studied, which makes it participant observation. In addition, the research is best characterized as "participant as observer" instead of "observer as participant" because the pseudopatients actually became a part of the mental hospital culture (as opposed to simply observing and taking notes).

ANSWERS: The pseudopatients claimed to be hearing voices, which was not true. The pseudopatients did not tell their doctors or other patients the truth while in the hospital.
