Abstract: In all studies of health-related problems and their effects on well-being, research design issues threaten to compromise the validity of findings. This is particularly so in a longitudinal study, essentially stemming from the tension between maintaining participant compliance and retaining investigator objectivity. Such a tension may be exacerbated where measures of dependent variables such as self-esteem are used alongside the collection of physical data which is essential to the study, as in research into th… Show more

“…While the findings of Prichard et al, in press provide the first empirical evidence for the use of team-skills training to enhance collaborative performance in HE settings, the real-world setting of the study, with data collected naturally as part of course evaluation, may have resulted in it suffering from a number of internal threats to validity such as 'history' or 'selection' (Campbell & Stanley, 1963;Stratford, Mulligan, Downie, & Voss, 1999). The present study aimed to demonstrate the benefits of team-skills training on both group performance and individual performance using a more carefully controlled experimental methodology.…”
