Part one: Question #2
Introduction
Research plays a crucial role in analyzing developing various elements found in the
environment enhancing their interaction. To ensure that the research is useful, there is a need to
adopt a series of steps that will assist in presenting the problem as it is in the environment. It is,
therefore, necessary for the researchers to observe some ethical factors when conducting their
research. Observing such considerations will facilitate the ability to research completion on the
target population to determine the extent of the problem. Research requires to be valid and
reliable. Various measures adopted during the research process should aim at ensuring that errors
or minimal errors occur during the research process. That way, the results obtained will
conclusively show the extent of the existing problem. As a result, it will be possible to identify
the necessary measures that need to be adopted to overcome the existing challenges. The
discussion below explores different types of validity and reliability in research. The differences
between research and validity will as well be discussed. Lastly, the norms that the scientific
community should observe when carrying out research will be identified and addressed as well.

The first type of validity is constructed validity. Construct validity can be defined as the
actual and accurate representations of the cause and effect of aspects under study. Construct
validity is described as a means to assess the quality that an experiment or the quality of a design
that is being experimented (Nardi, 28). It helps to determine the ability of the instruments chosen
to measure the desired variables. That way, it becomes possible to get real reflections of the
aspect under research.
An example of construct validity is adopting the observation method of data collection to
determine the level of stress of participants during a study. The fact that it is not possible to
observe stress makes the observation the wrong method for such research (Nardi, 28). To achieve
