Major Threats To Validity
- Create a detailed chart of major threats to validity for conclusion, construct and external validity.
- Write an essay that describes the major threats and how you would minimize them for internal validity.
Create a chart, noting three types of threats for conclusion, construct, and external validity. The following is an example of how you may want to organize your chart. In column 1, specify the specific threat; in column 2, provide a description of this threat; and in column 3, include a brief description of the method that is used to minimize the threat.
Example chart attached!
After you have completed your chart, prepare an essay in which you thoroughly describe the major threats to validity in external validity and explain how you would minimize the threats. Support your essay with five references that are scholarly and peer reviewed.
Length: 3 pages for the chart; 2-3 page essay (Not including title and reference pages)
Your chart and paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to the topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
