Which other aspects are important to consider in evaluating the quality of an instrument? Are there fundamental differences between appraisal instruments? Do we need to give our choice of appraisal instrument some thought? Could it assist us in evaluating the methodological quality of a study? Does it help us to establish rigor in qualitative research? Checklists only capture what has been reported.
I argue for the use of verification techniques for validity as a means for obtaining rigor. In evaluating validity at the end of a study post hoc , rather than focusing on processes of verification during the study we run the risk of missing serious threats to validity until it is too late to correct them.
Basic qualitative researchers should be motivated to adopt techniques that improve validityShould be guided in how to report qualitative research in order to facilitate critical appraisal To conclude To conclude The development of a standards set of reporting criteria for qualitative research is virtually impossible!
The development of a standard set of reporting criteria would facilitate critical appraisal. We might need you! To participate in a Delphi study on exploring the potential feasibility , appropriateness , meaningfulness and effectiveness of reporting criteria. To validate is to investigate, to check, to question, and to theorize. All of these activities are integral components of qualitative inquiry that insure rigor Morse, The process of inquiry is where the real verification happens.

Slide29 Conflicts of interest: Verification Enter the code above here: Qualitative Validity - The following overview compares validity in qualitative research with quantitative research validity.
Validity - This link provides an overview of the ways in which validity in analyzed in qualitative research and includes an explanation of common terminology. Triangulation - Establishing Validity - Types of triangulation that are used to improve the validity of qualitative research are discussed in this link. Techniques for Establishing Validity - The following resource provides links to techniques for establishing credibility, transferability, dependability and confirmability in qualitative research.

Establishing Validity in Qualitative Research The following module discusses reliability and validity in qualitative research, with an emphasis on establishing credibility and transferability. Define and reliability and validity in qualitative research. Discuss the importance of establishing validity.
List strategies used by researchers to improve reliability and validity. In order to withstand the scrutiny, researchers should spend time giving serious consideration to the following four aspects: Credibility - Often called internal validity, refers to the believability and trustworthiness of the findings.
This depends more on the richness of the data gathered than on the quantity of data. The participants of the study are the only ones that decide if the results actually reflect the phenomena being studied and therefore, it is important that participants feel the findings are credible and accurate.
Triangulation is a commonly used method for verifying accuracy that involves cross-checking information from multiple perspectives. The link in Resources Links on the left describes different types of triangulation methods. Transferability - Often called external validity, refers to the degree that the findings of the research can be transferred to other contexts by the readers. This means that the results are generalizable and can be applied to other similar settings, populations, situations and so forth.
Researchers should thoroughly describe the context of the research to assist the reader in being able to generalize the findings and apply them appropriately. Dependability - Otherwise known as reliability, refers to the consistency with which the results could be repeated and result in similar findings. The dependability of the findings also lends legitimacy to the research method. Because the nature of qualitative research often results in an ever changing research setting and changing contexts, it is important that researcher document all aspects of any changes or unexpected occurrences to further explain the findings.
