9 Credibility of Qualitative Studies CHAPTER ˜e Medieval alchemi-cal symbol for ﬁre was a single triangle, also the modern symbol for tri-angulation in geometry, trigonometry, and survey - ing: the process of locat-ing an unknown point by measuringanglesto it from known points. Triangulation in qualitative inquiry involves gathering and. qualitative research: systematic inquiry, naturalistic inquiry, instrumental, interpretive, evaluation, enlightenment, emancipatory, and iterative, to name just a few. The terms represent various processes, uses, and perspectives of qualitative research, as well as specific approaches to gathering, analyzing, interpreting, and writing up data.
QUALITATIVE RESEARCH METHODS From a large variety of qualitative research methods used in the social and human sciences, five stand out as more relevant in Information Sciences and Technologies research: Case Studies Ethnographic Research Grounded Theory Action-Research Design-Based Research University of Coimbra, Ph.D. in Information Sciences. Christian Dagenais, PhD, is associate professor at the University of Montreal. His research interests are centred around program evaluation and knowledge transfer. He coordinated a thematic segment of the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation in and is a co-author of the book Approches et pratiques en évaluation de programme published in.
The aim of this paper is to equip readers with an understanding of the principles of qualitative data analysis and offer a practical example of how analysis might be undertaken in an interview-based study. Qualitative research is a generic term that refers to a group of methods, and ways of collecting and analysing data that are interpretative or explanatory in nature and focus on meaning.

This chapter outlines some of the ways and means by which inte- grating qualitative and quantitative approaches in development research and program evaluation can help yield insights that neither.
While interviews for research or evaluation purposes may also promote understanding and change, the emphasis is on intellectual understanding rather than on producing personal change (Kvale, ). In qualitative program evaluation, open-ended responses to questions provide the evaluator with quotations, which are the main source of raw data.

Program evaluation is essential to public health. The Centers for Disease Control Qualitative program evaluation: reasoning Prevention sets standards for evaluation, develops evaluation tools and resources, and provides support for evaluation capacity-building. I have another point of view – using the concept of effectiveness vs.
efficiency KPIs. “Effectiveness” is liken to outcome driven measures (usually is output related) while “efficiency” is linked to means to an end, i.e. efforts. In that way efficiency KPIs can be comparable. Program evaluation is widely recognized in the international humanitarian sector as a means to make interventions and policies more evidence based, equitable, and accountable.
Yet, little is known about the way humanitarian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) actually use evaluations. The current qualitative evaluation employed an instrumental case study design to examine evaluation.
Gershon Tenenbaum, Edson Filho, in Performance Psychology, Sampling: The Importance of Case Selection. Qualitative assessment is not about large sample sizes or generalizability power. Rather, the selection of “the case” or “the participant” is based on strong theoretical reasoning (deductive approach), empirical data, and/or follows a reasonable logical path (inductive approach).
Qualitative research is a range of kinds of research, the common feature of which is reliance on unstructured data and on forms of data analysis that are non-numerical. The data may take the form of fieldnotes written by the researcher in the course of observation or interviews, audio or video recordings carried out by the researcher in natural settings or interviews, documents of various.

Evaluation is a systematic process to understand what a program does and how well the program does it. Evaluation results can be used to maintain or improve program quality and to ensure that future planning can be more evidence-based. Evaluation constitutes part of an ongoing cycle of program planning, implementation, and improvement (Patton.

To this end, the new Delphi approach is based on qualitative reasoning techniques . Participants' assessments through linguistic terms are considered qualitative labels in an absolute order-of. Program evaluation - the type of evaluation discussed in this section - is an essential organizational practice for all types of community health and development work.
It is a way to evaluate the specific projects and activities community groups may take part in, rather than to evaluate an entire organization or comprehensive community initiative.
Qualitative methods play important roles in improving the utilization of evaluation through providing for a better presentation of findings, identifying issues and problems needing to be evaluated, setting program goals, specifying program designs, determining how well programs are implemented, providing attention to unintended outcomes, and.

A page book that attempts to cover everything we need to know about using qualitative research in psychology does not best serve psychology.
Without a doubt psychology needs qualitative research methods presented in a way that are accessible but we need a series of books.
Quantitative data analysis is helpful in evaluation because it provides quantifiable and easy to understand results. Quantitative data can be analyzed in a variety of different ways. In this section, you will learn about the most common quantitative analysis procedures that are used in small program evaluation.
