Evaluating a Doctoral Study

For your selected doctoral study, evaluate the methods used for establishing quality. Incorporate appropriate
references to this week’s media resource as well as the course readings about establishing quality. For all
the questions below, remember to explain how you came to your conclusions. Support your answers with
explanation or evidence drawn from the doctoral study and from course readings.
Were the methods for establishing quality used appropriately for the qualitative tradition or research design
(e.g., case study, ethnography, grounded theory, etc.)? Why or why not?
Were all aspects of the methods for establishing quality described or justified sufficiently? If not, what
could have the author said and why? If sufficient, explain why you think so.
Do you think the author should have used additional methods to establish quality? If so, what other methods
would you recommend and specifically why should they have been used in this particular study? If not, why
not? This includes the methods of establishing quality as well as how they were conducted or implemented.
