Evaluating research questions and qualitative research designs

Discussion: Evaluating Research Questions and Qualitative Research Designs

Just as in quantitative research, when researchers set  out to design a qualitative research study, they are guided by its  purpose, and their research questions align with their selected approach  and the data that will be collected.

As you learned in previous weeks, alignment  means that a research study possesses clear and logical connections  among all of its various components. In addition to considering  alignment, qualitative researchers must also consider the ethical  implications of their design choice, including, for example, what their  choice means for participant recruitment, procedures, and privacy.

For this Discussion, you will evaluate  qualitative research questions in assigned journal articles in your  discipline and consider the alignment of theory, problem, purpose,  research questions, and design. You will also identify the type of  qualitative research design or approach the authors used and explain how  it was implemented. Narrative, ethnographic, grounded theory, case  study, and phenomenology are examples of types of research designs or  approaches used in qualitative research.

Post a critique of the research study in which you:

  • Evaluate the research questions (The Research Questions and Hypotheses Checklist can  be used as a guide to facilitate your evaluation; it is not meant to be  used in a Yes/No response format in writing your Discussion post.)
  • Identify the type of qualitative research approach used and explain how the researchers implemented the design
  • Analyze alignment among the theoretical or conceptual framework, problem, purpose, research questions, and design
