3B: Threats to Validity

In research, the threat of internal and external validity is commonly discussed. However, some researchers view one more important than the other. In your writing, compare and contrast internal and external validity, and make a determination based on your research/reading for which of the two validity factors is most critical and why, using citations and references to validate your argument.
