The aim of this paper is to analyze and review the most relevant definitions and theories related to methodological triangulation in social research, with an emphasis on pedagogical research in the education in Macedonia and beyond. The text also points to the importance for the pedagogues, teachers and other educators to gain research competences through their initial education and professional development, which would enable them to choose the appropriate research strategy in their work, regardless of whether it is related to monitoring the progress of student, assessment, evaluation or other issues relevant to their work. The beginning of the ideas for the use of various methods in social research comes from the work of Campbell and Fiske (1959), who believe that the validation of the results can be provided by using more than one research method. Furthermore, many researchers such as Bryman, Eberhart, Cohen, Ménion, Denzin, and others contributed to the development of the idea of applying triangulation in pedagogical research. In addition to ensuring the validity of the results, triangulation exceeds the antagonism between quantitative and qualitative research strategies. The concept of triangulation has initiated changes in curricula at some of the faculties for teacher education and training. In addition to the general courses for research methods, special courses are developed for qualitative and quantitative research strategies that are introduced in all three cycles of study: undergraduate, master and doctoral studies. Research competences have become an essential part of the set of competences that each teacher should possess.
