 Our Methods

We take a mixed methods approach to our work while prioritizing our value of empirical grounding, or testing scientific theories in real world settings, and ultimately integrating research and action. In addition, we also offer quasi-experimental and multi-method research design approaches when appropriate.
A mixed methods approach combines both quantitative (closed-ended) and qualitative (open-ended) data in a thoughtful and intentional way and as a means to gain a fuller understanding of a topic at hand.
While quantitative data can usually answer questions about what happened and to what magnitude; qualitative data is critical for understanding how things happened and why they occurred. 
We believe that both are critical to tell the full story of any project or initiative.
Our Methods Include:
  • Quasi-Experimental Design
  • Survey Development and Research
  • Focus Groups
  • Key Stakeholder (Semi-Structured) Interviews
  • Community Listening Sessions
  • Site Visits and Observations
  • Fidelity Checks on Evidence-Based Practices
  • Systems Mapping
  • Community-Based Participatory Approaches (such as photovoice)

   Our Model

The BSRI Model captures BSRI’s approach to applied research and evaluation, which is grounded in our values, mission, and vision. This model was developed over a decade of working with community partners and provides a roadmap to success for each project as it is customized to client and funder wants, needs, and requirements. The visual below outlines our phased and rigorous approach which is implemented at the start of each project in collaboration with the project team. Please contact us to discuss how the BSRI can be of service to your organization.
