ABSTRACT The validity of the current qualitative research is analyzed in this paper. The scientific validity criteria are being questioned by validity criteria sensitive to issues such as interpretation, representation, reflexivity and research control. This paper provides criteria for the evaluation of the qualitative research papers, based on a validation that surpasses the triangulation and chooses «crystallization», processes which are supposed to be more coherent with the social reality that intends to capture the qualitative research En este trabajo se analiza el problema de la validez de la investigación cualitativa actual, pues los criterios de validez científica están siendo cuestionados por criterios de validez sensibles a problemas como la interpretación, la representación, la reflexividad y el control de la investigación. Proporciona criterios para evaluar la calidad y rigor de los trabajos de investigación cualitativa, apoyándose en una validación que supera la mera triangulación y opta por procesos de «cristalización», procesos que se suponen más coherentes a la realidad social que pretende captar la investigación cualitativa.

    ABSTRACT: This paper situates paradigm talk with its insistence on multiplicities and proliferations in tension with a resurgent positivism and governmental imposition of experimental design as the gold stan-dard in research methods. Using the concept of 'coloring epistemologies' as an index of such tensions, the essay argues for proliferation as an ontological and historical claim. What all of this might mean in the teaching of research in education is dealt with in a delineation of five aporias that are fruitful in helping students work against technical thought and method: aporias of objectivity, complicity, difference, interpretation, and legitimization. The essay concludes with a 'disjunctive affirmation' of multiple ways of going about educational research in terms of finding our way into a less comfortable social science full of stuck places and difficult philosophical issues of truth, interpretation and responsibility.

    ABSTRACT: The question of what counts as good education research has received a great deal of attention, but too often it is conceived principally as a methodological question rather than an ethical one. Good education research is a matter not only of sound procedures but also of beneficial aims and results; our ultimate aim as researchers and educators is to serve people’s well-being. For their research to be deemed good in a strong sense, education researchers must be able to articulate some sound connection between their work and a robust and justifiable conception of human well-being. There is a good deal of history and convention against such a conception of researchers’ work. We need to consider the conditions needed if that conception is to be realized. Among the conditions is a concerted and cooperative endeavor for moral education among researchers and the people with whom they work—a context where questions of well-being are foregrounded, welcomed, and vigorously debated.
