In this book, Leighton (2017) describes two methods of qualitative interviewing that provide researchers an opportunity “to present observable indicators (evidence) of phenomena that are technically unobservable” (p. 14). Leighton (2017) describes the procedures for conducting and analyzing think-aloud interviews, which are used to understand problem solving processes; and cognitive laboratories, which provide insight into comprehension and understanding. Through the use of examples of verbal reports, Leighton (2017) provides readers with step-by-step processes which prepare researchers to be well equipped for collecting and analyzing interview data.
