4. Would you use a qualitative test to determine effectiveness of your health promotion initiative? 

a. Explain why

Utilitarian claims:

Utilitarianism: is the ethical doctrine that the moral worth of an action is solely determined by its contribution to overall utility.

It is thus a form of consequentialism, meaning that the morality of an action is determined by its outcome

*the ends justify the means.

*Utility: the good to be maximized

Peter Singer defines it as the satisfaction of preferences.

* an action may be considered right if it produces the greatest amount of net benefit and the least loss/cost of any available alternative action.

* the consequences of a particular action form the basis for any valid moral judgment about that action.

*morally right action is one that produces a good outcome, or consequence.

* the good is whatever brings the greatest happiness to the greatest number of people.

* “the greatest good for the greatest number of people.

* calculate the utility of an action by adding up all of the pleasure produced and subtracting from that any pain that might also be produced by the action.

Utilitarianism approach to morality quantitative and reductionistic

Utilitarianism can be contrasted with deontological ethics – focuses on the action itself rather than its consequences

In general use the term utilitarian often refers to a somewhat narrow economic or pragmatic viewpoint.

Commencing Quantitative Data Management

As soon as you begin collecting data, it is time to consider what to do with it as it comes in. You could just allow the data to accumulate and deal with it later, but there are several reasons not to do this. The first reason is probably obvious: if you do not begin to manage the data right away, you will have a huge job awaiting you later.

Brief Review of Quantitative Research

Before we go further, let us make sure that we understand quantitative research. What is Quantitative Research/Methodology?

Quantitative methodology is the dominant research framework in the social sciences. It refers to a set of strategies, techniques and assumptions used to study psychological, social and economic processes through the exploration of numeric patterns.

Quantitative research gathers a range of numeric data. Some of the numeric data is intrinsically quantitative (i.e., personal income), while in other cases the numeric structure is imposed (i.e., ‘On a scale from 1 to 10, how depressed did you feel last week?’).

The collection of quantitative information allows researchers to conduct simple to extremely sophisticated statistical analyses that aggregate the data (i.e., averages, percentages), show relationships among the data (i.e., ‘Students with lower grade point averages tend to score lower on a depression scale’) or compare across aggregated data (i.e., the USA has a higher gross domestic product than Spain).

Quantitative research includes methodologies such as questionnaires, structured observations or experiments and stands in contrast to qualitative research.

Qualitative research involves the collection and analysis of narratives and/or open-ended observations through methodologies such as interviews, focus groups or ethnographies.

Watch For The Following Issues As They Relate To Quantitative Data Management

Signatures on consents are not witnessed; copies of the consent have not been given to every participant.

Duplicate identification (ID) numbers have been inadvertently assigned to participants. (This can happen, for example, if you use the last four digits of the Social Security number, which has been a common but not recommended practice.)

Rating scales are scored incorrectly. This is most likel
