METHODS FOR EVALUATING EVIDENCE 2
Methods for Evaluating Evidence.
Just as in many fields, the same methods of evaluating evidence are used. The two main
approaches used are quantitative and qualitative techniques. According to USC libraries,
quantitative methods emphasize objective measurements and the statistical, mathematical or
numerical analysis of data collected.” On the other hand, qualitative techniques are described as
distinctions based on quality and characteristics. I am going to focus on these two main
approaches and compare them.
In the quantitative technique, the data and information used are quantified and analyzed
to make conclusions and observations needed. The data used is taken from a population and used
as a sample to represent the population. After the samples are collected, the sample is then
analyzed using some statistics, which helps make the conclusions. Some assumptions, such as
assuming that the data used is correct, are made when using this technique.
On the other hand, the qualitative technique concerns aspects that cannot be quantified
(Queiros, Faria, & Almeida, 2017). The type of data used in this type of technique is obtained
through; interviews, questionnaires, observations, and natural settings. This method of evidence
evaluation is mainly used in fields such as human life, culture, expression, beliefs, etc. The
technique also has some assumptions. The data and information collected from its sources are
assumed collect and true.
In conclusion, the two methods of evidence evaluation discussed are both important.
Other evidence or data require a different kind of technique for evaluation. Quantitative would
be best in evaluating quantifiable data, while qualitative would be best for data that cannot be
quantified. When deciding on the method to use in evaluating evidence, the only thing that one
needs to know is the type of information one is using.
