An experiment is a procedure carried out to support but always rely on repeatable procedure and logical analysis of the results a positive control is a procedure similar to the actual experimental test but is known from previous experience to give a positive result. Common computer-aided qualitative data analysis packages there are many computer packages that can support your qualitative data analysis no procedure is perfectly reliable, but if a data collection procedure is unreliable then it is also invalid.
