Abstract

This article argues that many quantitative research studies are deficient as far as their method of research is concerned. The ‘Method' section should he critically evaluated in order to determine whether the findings that are reported are valid and reliable. Each of the sub-sections usually included in the method section is discussed, and a checklist for the evaluation of quantitative research studies is provided.
