If I, was to go to Harper High School, I would use credibility, transferability, dependability, and confirmability to make my findings valid. Credibility, focuses on making sure that the interpretations presented in the study are true to the observed (168-170). The purpose of qualitative research is to describe the perspective from the participant 's eyes, thus, the participants are the only ones who can legitimately judge the credibility of the results. Since, I would be conducting similar research to the radio producers, seeing the daily activities of the students would help establish credibility, since it is direct data. Transferability, is a response to generalization (done by quantitative research), it creates ‘thick description’ which is detailed description of the research and assumptions (168-170).
Peter Elbow presents the believing game and the doubting game in “The Believing Game-Methodological Believing.” He states that, the doubting game represents a form of thinking that is mostly recognize and taught. The doubting game intention is to be skeptical and analytical with every idea that one experiences. On the other hand, the believing game principle is to embrace as much as possible every idea one experiences, by actually trying to believe different views. He believes that both the doubting game and believing game has weaknesses. The doubting game is weak in helping one find the hidden integrity, while the believing game is weak in helping one find the hidden flaws. However, the doubting game is also weak in finding the hidden flaws
For sources to be credible the researcher should sort various sources to determine the fairest and clearest sources. It is a good practice to recognize shortcoming and biases from each source. Using evidence in the research is important to prevent generalization of the argument since one is able to point out an opposing point of view. It is important for any argument in the research to have critics since readers are able to know how different people view the same topic under discussion before making their
Credibility is subjective aspect attached to person, people, things, and product or to other object unlike age, height or weight measurable in terms quantitative terms. Credibility is likely scalable on which others give you a rating and in all actuality make a judgment about you over all. Credibility also entails the fact that individuals want to know if a person can be trusted whenever it comes to things that they put their word in. According to Cardon (2013), `establishing credibility through competence refers to the knowledge and skills needed to accomplish business tasks, approach business problems, and get a job done. To establish credit through caring, in the business world, caring implies understanding the interest of others, cultivating a sense of community, and demonstrating accountability. To establish credibility through character, it refers to a reputation for staying true to commitments made through stakeholders, and adhering to
Trust is the base of all types of relationships. In the movie finding forrester, through trust Jamal and William became friends. William was a retired author and jamal was a black high school student. With different backgrounds, it is an unlikely friendship. William became a mentor for jamal’s writing. It took a lot of learning to trust to become friends. William trusted jamal not to tell anyone that he was helping him learn to write better. When Jamal breaks Williams trust and takes one of the writings to school, Jamal trusts william to help him get out of a plagiarizing mistake. In life, trust is a big part of relationships, whether it be in character, setting or seeing how it caused conflict.
The criteria is a standard by which the relevance of research studies are decided or judged. There are many evaluation criteria but some of them that are going to be discussed in this paper are authority, accuracy, relevance, objectivity, currency, and audience. Accuracy helps to determine how the source which is found on a website is reliable and error free. One has to remember to look at who hosts the site. It can be hosted a University, by professional association, a government, a publisher, a commercial host, and an advocacy group.
One can never truly get to know another until they acquire their trust. This could not be any more true in the movie “Finding Forrester”. The story is told through the lens of Jamal Wallace, an extremely gifted basketball player with cautiously suppressed intelligence. Jamal’s talents begin to show when he finally finds a mentor, William Forrester, he trusts will respect his intelligence. A private school takes notice of his skills, especially on the court, and recruits him to attend. Both Jamal and the school Administration distrust each other’s motives and conflict ensues. It is only when Forrester fulfills the trust that Jamal had in him by visiting the school that the conflict is resolved. The amount of trust one has in another or their
All of the articles, and their authors, gain a significant amount of credibility throughout the article. All of the authors are either very experienced in the health and wellness field or have obtained their Ph.D. in a field relating to brain study or understanding how humans and their emotions connect. In addition to their prior knowledge, the authors also bring in a lot of outside sources to enhance their credibility. They all cite past researchers and experimental findings in their articles. In addition, they all are very aware to the contextual settings surrounding their topic.
Methodology In my thesis I utilized the quantitative content analysis method. There are many definitions of this research method from different authors. Most of the definitions include similar principles. The research should be systematical, objective, quantitative and replicable.
The term Research Methodology refers to a set of procedures, methods & techniques that are put together by the researchers to obtain a solution to the problems they confront during the collection of data. The researchers look for the most crucial data which is inevitable for the research. Generally there are three kinds of approaches or research methods namely Qualitative, Quantitative and Mixed. These methods are used to gather data and resolve issues that emerge during the process of data gathering. The researcher can bring forward his findings either in the form of quantitative or qualitative or mixed research methodologies only when the data is collected based on the preliminary data gathering process and the secondary data gathering process.
Is It True? Living in a Fake News World “But I 'm ravenous for news, any kind of news; even if it 's false news, it must mean something” (Atwood, 1985). In this digital day and age, people have access to information and news at any time. People give their attention to a headline, an article, or a link just because they are posted on the internet.
“Quantitative research is conducted in a context of previous knowledge” (Polit & Beck, 2017, p. 54)., which could limit a researcher based off their amount of previous knowledge on the subject being studied. And the researcher collect data from a sample size of a population. The sample’s adequacy is assessed by its size and representativeness. (Polit & Beck, 2017). A small sample size could limit the validity of the
