An Inquiry about Mixed Methodology for Family Studies
Yang, Sung-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 9, 2006, Pages 1~8
The purposes of the present article are to suggest pragmatism as offering a philosophical paradigm for mixed methods research, to explain the fundamental principles of mixed methodology, and to present examples of research for understanding how to apply it to family studies. Mixed methods research is the class of research where the researcher mixes or combines quantitative and qualitative techniques, methods, approaches, concepts or language into a single study. Mixed methodology has its roots in pragmatism, which is a new philosophical paradigm to criticize the traditional dualism and to endorse eclecticism and pluralism. The present article argues that mixed methods research has the potential to answer a broader and more complete range of research questions, and to provide strong evidence for a conclusion through convergence and corroboration of the qualitative and the quantitative methods.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 9, 2006, Pages 9~19
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships among early childhood teachers' attitudes toward music education, music teaching practice, and music teaching efficacy. A total of 255 early childhood teachers participated in the study and data were analyzed through frequency, percentile, mean, standard deviation, t-test, and Pearson's correlation. The results of this study indicated that early childhood teachers' music teaching efficacy, attitudes toward music education and music teaching practice were influenced mainly by the teacher's own educational level. They also showed that early childhood teachers' music teaching efficacy, attitudes toward music education, and music teaching practice were correlated with one another. In conclusion, the early child teachers' sense of music teaching efficacy turned out to be a very important factor in early childhood teachers' music education.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the preferences and utilization of green tea and its products for adults living in Chonbuk area. Self-administered questionnaires were collected from 388 (117 male, 271 female) subjects. who were classified into 5 groups by age. Data were analysed by chi-square and ANOVA. The results can be summarized as follows. On the investigation of preferences, there was a significant difference between and among the age groups(p<.001). More than 20% of the subjects in the
years group preferred coffee and juice. A half of the elderly over 60 years preferred a kind of green tea. The frequency of green tea drinking was not significantly influenced by age. Drinking green tea less than once a day was replied by 59.0% of the subject of whom 44.3% drank the green tea at home. and 42.0% got information about green tea from TV or radio. Regarding the satisfaction with products using green tea, 62.6% of the subjects responded only 'mediocre.' The brown rice-green tea was marked to be the highest in terms of recognition among all kinds of products. The green tea-related products were rated higher by the elder group. In conclusion, future research should focus on the development of green tea and its products in accordance with the consumption pattern in each age group.

Moon, Myeng-Ok ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 9, 2006, Pages 31~39
This study was conducted to reproduce the two-piece sleeve pattern of the ladies' jacket of the 1890's for Korean women of the twenties who have the standard body type and the average size. Fourteen two-piece sleeve patterns of the ladies 'jacket of the 1890's were collected and drawn to actual size. The length and width proportion of the upper-sleeve and under-sleeve pattern of the ladies' jacket of the 1890's were similar to the two-piece sleeve pattern of jacket which we see now. The elbow line of the two-piece sleeve pattern of the ladies' jacket of the 1890's was lower than the two-piece sleeve of jacket of today. The cap of the sleeve of the ladies' jacket of the 1890's was gathered and this gave volume to the upper part of sleeve but the lower part of the sleeve was tight. The study pattern of two-piece sleeve pattern which had the characteristics of the sleeve pattern of the ladies' jacket of the 1890's was designed like
for Korean women of the twenties who have the standard body type and the average size through modifications based on the evaluation of dressing on two occasions. The study pattern was evaluated to have the silhouette of the sleeve of the ladies' jacket of the 1890's and to fit Korean women of the twenties who have the standard body type and the average size with the sensory test.
Characteristics on the military look in modern fashion - focused on the post-2000 era -
Kim, Sun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 9, 2006, Pages 41~50
This study examines the characteristics of the military look in modern fashion. The materials for the study are mainly precedent studies and related literature, although fashion portfolios and magazines, domestic and international, are used for the exploratory study. The results of the study are as follows. First, the military look for women dismantles the sexual symbolism endowed with the clothes by expressing a neutral charm out of dichotomy image between genders. The neutral expression of the military look, different from the military look of the 20th century, provides a chance to feature a new image by pursuing more individual freedom than human itself. Second, the military-look emphasizes feminine sensual charm through exposing, concealing, or decorating with ornaments which are transformed from the elements of the military clothes, This is different from the past military look that expressed masculine rigidity through simplifying the details and emphasizing the male body silhouette. Third, the military look produces a deconstruction image instead of just showing its intrinsic thoughts or symbolic message through combining design elements or symbolic details of the military look with other images, transforming and exaggerating the shapes, or mixing the time point of views reinterpreting the present or the future image.

Jeon, Kyung-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 9, 2006, Pages 51~59
The role of consumer self-confidence is important in consumer's purchase decision. Nevertheless, the use of self-esteem measures might cause misinformation in the specific situation of the marketing-related point of view. In this study, consumer self-confidence was measured by marketing oriented tools to clarify the dimensions of consumer self-confidence while the influence of consumer self-confidence on clothing satisfaction was also investigated. A total of 325 questionnaires were collected by surveying university students in Seoul and the surrounding metropolitan area using convenient sampling. The data were analysed by factor analysis, ANOVA, t-test, and regression by using SPSSWIN program. The findings of the study were as fellows. First, the consumer self-confidence was composed of 6 sub-scales: information acquisition, personal outcomes decision making, social outcomes decision making, consideration-set formation, persuasion knowledge, and marketplace interfaces. Second, female subjects rated higher on consumer self-confidence than male subjects did in social outcomes decision making and consideration-set formation. Third, higher income was correlated with higher social outcomes decision making and consideration-set formation. Finally, clothing satisfaction was influenced by personal outcomes decision making and information acquisition.

A Longitudinal Approach to the Effects of Early Maternal Employment on Mother-Child Relationship
Chang, Young-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 9, 2006, Pages 89~101
The purpose of this study was to provide better understanding of longitudinal effects of early maternal employment on mother-child relationship using 1364 families participating the NICHD Study of Early Child Care in the U.S. Based on the information on maternal employment from 6 months after the child's birth, three employment groups were created: mothers who had always worked more than 30 hours per week, mother who had worked part-time or had been inconsistently employed, and mothers who had never worked. At 36 months, mothers who had extensively employed for the first 36 months showed significantly lower level of supportive presence compared to mothers who had never worked. Mothers who had partly employed for the first year of child's life displayed higher level of supportive presence at 36 months compared to mothers in the other two 12 month employment groups. No other significant employment group differences were found in the mothers' respect for child's autonomy and hostility at 36 months. At first grade, mothers in three employment groups were not different in their relationship with their child. The findings suggested that maternal employment, specifically early extensive maternal employment, does not consistently predict lower quality of mother-child interaction in two or three years later.

The Elderly Welfare Act
Kim, Sun-Joong ; Ryu, Hyun-Joo ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 44, issue 9, 2006, Pages 103~117
There is no compulsory administration on the facility status for silver medical welfare facilities under the current legal regulations based on the welfare law of the aged nor is there standardized space allotment conditions that considered the physical psychological and pathological characteristics of the aged. Hence, welfare facilities are presently being constructed under general architectural laws. (Ed- paragraphs combined here) Therefore, standardized space allotment conditions should be planned soon for the aged in welfare facilities. (Ed- paragraphs combined here) In this study we examined the situation of space allotment through both blueprint analysis and interview with building supervisors. However, in future studies, we will focus on space insufficiency situations and the needs of the aged residents in welfare facilities.
