Identify and describe the sample including demographics, in the studies chosen in W2 Assignment 2

The researchers used a purposive, non-probability sample. The study demographics are incarcerated women from all ethnic backgrounds and all age groups.

A convenience sample was used. 312 study participants were chosen for the sample. The study demographics characteristics are (1) age between 19 and 84; (3) various social backgrounds; (4) females were the prevailing gender group; (5) more than 60% of subjects had an academic degree; (6) more than 70% of all participants agreed to donate their organs.

Discuss the steps of the data collection process used in the studies

To collect the research data, the subjects were divided into two groups depending on the type of blocks they were kept in. The interviewer visited both groups. Provisions were made to keep the correctional officers at a distance from the interview rooms in order to minimize the threat of acquiring the biased research results.

Online survey helped in collecting research data.

Identify the study variables (independent and dependent)

Independent variables are trust, respect, and empowerment, and dependent variable is the quality of health education offered to incarcerated women.

Independent variables are spiritual health, purpose in life, and social-demographic status, and dependent variable is the decision to sign the donor card.

Identify the sampling design

“A non-random purposive sample” (Dinkel & Schmidt, 2015, p. 27).

A random choice of focus groups

Describe the instrument, tool, or survey used in each article.

The instrument is a questionnaire, the tool is interview

Researchers used online survey.

Summarize the discussion about the validity and reliability of the instruments, tools, or surveys used in each article

Since the purposeful sample was selected for the research, the scholars evaluated the external validity of their research results as rather high (Dinkel & Schmidt, 2015).

The scholars stated that they are aware of the strong and weak points of the instrument selected for the research. They considered the privacy provided by the online survey tool the strong characteristic of their research project (Bortz, Ashkenazi, & Melnikov, 2015). They believed this peculiarity enabled the study subjects to provide unbiased answers. The limitations they noted were connected to the religious and ethnic homogeneity of study subjects. They explained that because the study was conducted in Israel, most respondents were the Hebrew followers of Judaism (Bortz et al., 2015).

Identify the legal and ethical concerns for each article, including informed consent and IRB approval

IRB approved the research proposal. Before interviewing participants, researchers made the provisions to obtain their informed consent.

IRB approved the research procedures. The informed consent form was placed at the top of the online questionnaire, so subjects could proceed to answering questions only after signing in the informed consent.

Conclusion: Analysis of research components of the proposed articles demonstrated the high validity and credibility of the research results. However, as in any study, the researchers faced certain limitations, so they made notifications regarding the possibility of minor drawbacks.
