What approach do the authors use to   establish content validity?

Content validity is the “degree to which an   instrument has an appropriate sample of items for the construct being   measured and adequately covers the construct domain.” To ensure a   “content-valid” instrument, researchers should start with a conceptualization   of the construct. This can be based on:

· First-hand   knowledge

· Literature   review

· Expert   consultations

· Preliminary   qualitative studies

What type of sampling plan was used?   Would an alternative sampling plan have been preferable? Was the sampling   plan one that could be expected to yield a representative sample?

  

Sampling plan.
