Research and Critique a Qualitative Study
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, be sure to have read all the required
resources for the week.
Locate a peer-reviewed qualitative research study in the Ashford University Library on
the topic you chose in Week One for your Final Research Proposal. You may choose to
use a qualitative study that was included in the literature review you used in the Week
One assignment by searching the reference list for qualitative research studies on the
topic. It is also acceptable to utilize a qualitative research study on your topic that was
not included in your literature review.
Once you have located an appropriate qualitative study, identify the specific qualitative
research design used. Summarize the main points of the study including information on
the research question, sampling strategy, research design, data analysis method(s),
findings, and conclusion(s). Evaluate the published qualitative research study focusing
on and identifying the researcher’s paradigm or worldview and any evidence of
reflexivity described in the report. Explain whether or not potential biases were
adequately addressed by the researchers. Describe how the researchers applied ethical
principles in the research study.
