Zulauf et al. (2019) describe their comparative study of factors leading to teachers expelling children from preschool, with comparisons based on matrix analyses in which they compared qualitative interview responses from teachers based on categorisation from their survey responses. They provide details of their sampling and coding processes, and examples from their analyses. Questions are asked to help readers draw useful insights from this example study.
