Intro: Longitudinal studies are studies carried out over a long period of time and it can collate both quantitative (positivists) and qualitative data (interpretivists).

Pros:
+ It's not a snapshot -> shows changes in attitudes/behaviours over time -> increase validity of results
+ Researchers get to know the respondents well as they're able to build a strong rapport and valid data -> people more likely to trust someone they know.

Cons:
- Time consuming and demanding for researcher and participants - my affect results
- Sample attrition - people drop out over time -> decrease representative

Btw I doubt this would come up but if it does, make sure you give a brief intro about what the RM is and explain whether it's preferred by positivists or interpretivists and why. Then look at the pros and cons of the RM when applied to a specific context in education - if there's few pros, move to the cons and in your conclusion, suggest a RM that may be better suited and briefly explain why. For a theories and methods question, it's similar but usually more broad, i.e. sociological research and you can apply it to different context, i.e. education or media (I don't do this).

Another thing for methods in context and theories in methods in general ... Be careful with structural interviews - loads of students get confused and say it's preferred by interpretivists. It's NOT! A structured interview is similar to a standardise questionnaire, i.e. the questions are pre-set but the interviewer asks the interviewee the question and they can collate quantiative data. Hence why it's preferred by positivists.

Methods in Context you mean. That's the 20 marker iirc and theories is a 10 marker.
