The next figure presents a schematic design of the rationale and purpose model. Participant supplementation will be achieved through the mixing of quantitative and qualitative methods in order to maximize the results by obtaining participant feedback on the interview results and to obtain information on participants who exhibited high and low levels of efficacy. Instrument trustworthiness refers to the use of reliability and validity measures that helped establish the effectiveness of the instruments chosen for this study. Significant enrichment was achieved through the mixing of the methods to gain a greater understanding of the quantitative results. Purpose: 1 Obtain participants 1. Adequacy of survey 1.
