Question Description Researchers consider validity and reliability with each new study they design. This is because validity and reliability are not fixed but rather reflect a particular study’s unique variables, research design, instruments, and participants. In the context of research design, two types of validity, which speak to the quality of different features of the research process, are considered: internal validity and external validity.

Question Description The following is a question from the comprehensive examination for the PhD in Criminology Program at Florida State University. The deterministic model of research dominates the field of criminology, implying that behavior is fully determined.
