4 Making comparisons

In the activities in the following sections, you will look at examples of the two research orientations of comparative education: large-scale, cross-national comparisons, and small-scale interview comparisons. These two orientations are not always separate. For instance, large-scale surveys can be illuminated by small-scale case studies that give depth and detail to numerical data and ‘humanise’ the numbers.
