The current mixed methods research combined both quantitative and qualitative approaches together in different types. This paper proposed two principle types consisting of basic mixed methods research and advance mixed methods research. Each of these two types involving 7 different models which could be applied to various research objectives as follows: 1. A convergent Design Model: The quantitative and qualitative data were collected and analyzed to compare the result, 2. An Explanatory Sequential Design model: the quantitative approaches was conducted followed by the quantitative approaches and its result were utilize to explain the quantitative approaches deeply, 3. An Exploratory Sequential Design Model: begin with studying the state of the problems using quantitative approaches and utilize its result to design the quantitative research later, 4. Experimental Design or Intervention Design Model: the qualitative data were Studied and collected during, before or after the experiment, 5. Case study Design Model: the two set of the data were conceptualized together in each case and compare the results of each case, 6. Social Justice or Transformative Design Model: this model concerned mainly with the social justice and it was conducted by collecting the data of human living, 7. Multistage Evaluation Model: this mixed method s model using the diversified design and long term period. The model 1 - model 3 are core type of mixed methods research and model 4- model 7 are advance type of methods research These core mixed methods research could be applied for conducting the advance mixed methods research, of which could be selected coping with the research objectives. These designs of mixed method research can applied to both social sciences and research.
