Qualitative Research Verification Process

Test the validity of a research study using a verification process. First review the “Qualitative Validity” section in your textbook (pages 75–81). Then read the Mitchell Report on Steroids – Executive Summary and use Creswell’s verification process outlined in Table 5.3 in your textbook to analyze the validity of the study (focus primarily on the qualitative research). Using the Qualitative Verification Process Worksheet provided (a blank version of the verification elements provided in Table 5.3), identify and describe in two to three sentences the verification methods that were used in the article. Address the result of the verification process?whether, in your opinion, the article’s research passed the process. If the research passed the verification process, explain how that was done. If not, determine what could have been improved to strengthen the validity of this study. For additional details, please refer to the Module Six Worksheet Guidelines and Rubric document in the Assignment Guidelines and Rubrics section of the course.
