Abstract [en]

The understanding of quality in scientific work is fundamental and determines what researchers judge to represent reliable knowledge in their field. Although quality criteria are used daily in research, there are few extensive discussions available especially in Engineering Education Research (EER). For the development of future high-quality research in EER we argue that it is necessary that the EER-community begin to negotiate criteria for quality. In this paper we propose tentative criteria with a special focus on qualitative EER, although we argue that several of our proposed criteria are also appropriate for quantitative EER. Our proposed criteria are divided into three main categories: quality of a study in general, quality of the results and validity of the results. We describe these in detail, together with a number of subcategories for each and introduce a hypothetical study to exemplify our criteria. It is stressed that the proposed criteria are tentative and that criteria need to be open for debate and need to evolve as research evolves.
