Analyze a Research Study
After reading the activity readings, read and analyze Schulz , R. (1976). Prepare a paper in which you:
Identify the central claims of the study
Characterize the type of method(s) used in Creswell’s terms
Identify actual threats to validity, following the order of Trochim’s hierarchy of threats discussed in
Trochim (2006) Introduction to Validity . Drawing on Validity Typology and Validity Threats, discuss the
threats you judge are or could have been (if Schulz did not counter them) plausible threats to Schulz’s
claims about what he has found. Read carefully and imagine yourself into the circumstances of the study to
determine if a threat is plausible.
Assess whether Schulz countered the threats you identify (see Trochim, W., & Donnelly, J. (2008) Chapter 11a
for the five ways to address threats). If a threat was not countered, assess if and how it affects Schulz’s
claims about what he has found.
Length: 4-7 pages (app. 350 words)
