Abstract

For each of the four distinctive aspects of a paradigm, case study research does now seem to stand sharply apart from traditional research. It seems then, that it is appropriate to speak of "competing paradigms" and that we in science educational research would do well to examine our own practices as researchers and see on which side we wish to stand.
