Summary/Abstract: This study investigates the emergence of triangulation in teacher trainees’ research plans. The main objective of the research is to detect the inap¬propriate uses of triangulation to point out didactic aspects that can promote the efficiency of educators teaching research methodology. Participants in research methodology courses had to design and document a research process related to school or teaching in the form of a research plan. They had a free choice regarding the topic of the research. The coding of the text corpora amounting to 400 pages was done by combining deductive and inductive logic. The reliability of coding was ensured by intracoding. The results show that inappropriate uses of triangula¬tion can be described as misuse of terminology, false equivalence of triangulation and methodological triangulation, and false equivalence of triangulation and mixed methods. The problems encountered have a double feedback function. First, they give feedback for the academic course, second, after drawing the conclusions they also serve as self-reflection to form education activities and thinking.
