assess validy threats of qualitative research design

prepare a chart, based on the readings and your research, which provides a solid argument for how you would defend your qualitative research design.

You must cite at least four references overall for this assignment when responding to the validity threats questions. Pay particular attention to those sources that are important to qualitative studies, to issues of sound design and credibility, dependability, and integrity of data analysis. These are typical questions that you may be faced with as you evaluate, discuss, and defend your results.

Your chart should address the following:

Validity Threats How you will defend these threats Sources cited
What are the plausible alternative interpretations and validity threats to your conclusions you might have about your topic?
How will you successfully defend against the plausible alternative interpretations?
How will you successfully defend against validity threats to your conclusions?
In what ways can the data you have, or that you can potentially collect, challenge your ideas about your topic?
Why should the research community believe your results?

Conclude your chart with a summary in which you discuss what question you find most important when it comes to defending the validity of your study.

You will need to support your assignment with at least five references from peer-reviewed journals.

Length: 1-2 page chart, 1-2 page summary

Your chart and paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to the topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
