Triangulation

Triangulation is sometimes referred to as methodological pluralism

Triangulation is the use of one or more research method when carrying out social research in order for the different methods to complement each other.

For example Ofsted using overt observations as well as official data (exam results) to assess how well as school is performing. The trouble is triangulation produces a lot of data which takes a long time to process.
