where the researcher and the research participant create knowledge in a joint act of discovery.
The participants answered the questions within the transcript, made factual corrections,
and added information to the transcript before returning it via e-mail. I downloaded the returned
transcript to the USB flash drive as a separate file labeled "with my questions revised." I printed
a copy of each file and placed it in a binder prior to data analysis. When the final transcript was
returned to me, another review of the transcript was made prior to the next interview. Any points
that were pertinent to the next topic were highlighted with yellow marker in a hard copy of the
I revised questions in the semi-structured interview based on the highlighted transcript. I
sent each participant the revised semi-structured interview questions prior to the next scheduled
interview. I took a hard copy of the transcribed interview to the subsequent interview, referring
to highlighted portions at the end of the interview. Participants addressed any questions at that
time. I validated the accuracy of the revised transcript by asking each participant if he or she had
