Option 3. Test the generalizability of the results and recommendations through focus group discussions

Focus group methods are not presented in this manual, nor were they used during either of the field tests. We recognize, however, that many researchers have extensive experience conducting focus groups and will wish to use them to test the generalizability of results and recommendations.

Several excellent references on these methods are listed at the end of Part I.
