Comparisons Between Two Studies

One of the strengths (or at least potential strengths) of this two phase study is that we can compare results from these two different samples, taken several years apart. Are the findings “robust” with regard to consistency over time, as well as the sampling of different populations (at least minimal overlap in populations sampled). Following are comparisons between the two studies regarding all three questions. We begin with the First Question and offer means and variances (as well as rankings) for both studies.

    The best part of this report of the results of these two surveys is the discussion of the concepts. Such discussion is valuable regardless of the reliability or validity of the results (or evidence).

    Unfortunately, the methodology section is missing the most important aspect of methodology: how were each of the surveys distributed and what was the rate of return. If, as I suspect, this was an Internet-based survey, then the results have an exceptionally low chance of being either reliable or valid. That is, the likelihood that they reflect the “coaching industry” or “a typical coach” is incredibly small. Thus, conclusions based on the results are suspect.

    But there’s the point. The discussion itself has its own reliability and validity independent of the survey. The points made are worthy of continuing discussion regardless of the surveys.
