Question description

Discussion Question

  • The issues of internal and external validity and bias are important for researchers to address throughout the research process.They have a synergistic relationship as researchers need to have both internal and external validity in order to make causal claims (cause and effect) in the study.However, when increasing one it often reduces the other and vice versa.For this discussion question, review the information on external and internal validity and bias .If you had to make a choice in your study, which would you rather sacrifice: internal or external validity.Why (provide specific examples of topic or concept)?

    In addition, expand your answer into the area of personal bias.Since research is designed to answer or address questions of fact, does that mean that researcher bias has no influence on the process or findings?Can the scientific method eliminate researcher bias?Why or why not?Use specific examples and information to support your points

    Your answer should be 100-150 words
