1. Identify a research question of your choice. What qualitative approach(es) would you use to answer your research question? What assessment instruments would you develop? How would you ensure that your process is both valid and reliable?

2. Identify a five -to ten-page transcript of a focus – group discussion or an individual interview. Review the transcript and highlight each theme that occurs in a different color. Using a pair of scissors, cut out each theme, keeping a part of the text for quotes and context. Write a summary report of your interview data including quotes. What conclusions would you draw from your results? How might they differ from another person ’s?
