Are Phenomenographic Results Reliable?
Sandburg, Jorgen
Higher Education Research and Development, v16 n2 p203-12 Jun 1997
Argues that interrater reliability, traditionally used in phenomenographic research, is unreliable for establishing the reliability of research results; it does not take into account the researcher's procedures for achieving fidelity to the individuals' conceptions investigated, and use of interrater reliability based on objectivist epistemology is theoretically and methodologically inconsistent. Argues for reliability as interpretive awareness, maintained through phenomenological reduction. (Author/MSE)
