Outline how the study’s qualitative data collection and analysis did, or did not, promote rigor, provide scientific or systematic scaffolding, and/or generate a more thorough analysis of the research topic.

To prepare:

  • Consider      your readings about and understanding of quantitative and qualitative      research. If you had to choose, which type of research (quantitative or      qualitative) do you think is more rigorous and why? Do you think it is      useful to make such generalizations and comparisons?
  • Locate      an article describing a qualitative research study related to a health      care topic (see attached PDF).
  • Formulate      a research question to address the problem and that would lead you to      employ correlational statistics.
  • With      information from the Learning Resources in mind, critically analyze your      selected study. Ask yourself: How rigorous was the study in terms of the      researchers’ efforts, the data collected, and the conclusions drawn? What      might the researchers have done to improve the rigor?
