Major Threats To Validity


Major Threats To Validity

Major Threats To Validity

 2 Parts 

  • 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.

Part 1

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! 


Part 2

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.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
