data (Polit & Beck, 2017). Credibility ensures that the way the study was carried out along with the findings of the study is true data. Ensuring that participants are truthful in the information they are providing and that the researcher is truthful when reporting the data shows credibility. Dependability ensures that the data found is reliable and will be over time (Polit & Beck, 2017). Conformability ensures that the research is objective. Conformability makes sure that the researcher collecting data and recording it is able to stay neutral and not bias (Korstjens & Moser, 2016). Allowing others to read the data andensure that the way the researcher is depicting it is accurate shows conformability. Transferability ensures that the data collected in applicable to the study. The reader must be able to apply the information in other settings (Polit & Beck, 2017). Authenticity ensures that the data is truly a reality. The data must accurately show the information that the participants provided. Also, the readers must be able to understand the information being reported and understand how the participants felt (Polit & Beck, 2017). Ensuring that there are not any researcher bias also helps with research validity. Using a voice recorder so the participant’s words are not mistaken for something else along with intensive listening promotes validity (Polit & Beck, 2017). Rigor will come from being thorough and accurate in qualitative research (Cypress, 2017). 5. Select one of the strategies used to promote qualitative research validity that you explained in question #4 and compare it to a specific quantitative strategy addressing similar issues of validity, trustworthiness, and rigor.Using the framework Lincoln and Guba developed, conformability prevents bias from theresearcher. Qualitative and quantitative both need to be free of bias to be able to be accurate research. In qualitative data conformability is used to ensure that the data received from the participant is interpreted correctly and not inverted by the researcher.
