research be repeated
in the same way?
Validity: are we
getting a true
picture of real life?
Examples: link the

which have used it

reflect the whole population? Can
we generalise from the study? If
our sample was a slice ...

method to theory
e.g. Positivism vs.
Interpretivism
Explain: say how the
method works, what
different types of it there
are (e.g. covert vs. overt)

Transcript of "Resourcd File"

  1. 1. Practical issues: access to subjects, time, money, language, recording & analysing data, personal risk
  2. 2. Ethical issues: informed consent, confidentiality, causing harm, illegal activities, deception, right to withdraw.
  3. 3. Reliability: can the research be repeated in the same way?
  4. 4. Validity: are we getting a true picture of real life?
  5. 5. Examples: link the method to studies which have used it
  6. 6. Representative: does the sample reflect the whole population? Can we generalise from the study? If our sample was a slice of cake, is it big enough & with the right proportions for us to be able to generalise about the whole cake?
  7. 7. Theory: link the method to theory e.g. Positivism vs. Interpretivism
  8. 8. Explain: say how the method works, what different types of it there are (e.g. covert vs. overt)
  9. 9. Data: what kind of data does the method give us? (e.g. Quantitative vs. Qualitative)
