Evaluate the study and write a critique, using the textbook and relevant journal articles to support your analysis of the study. Use the following section headings and content in your paper.

  1. Introduction
    • State the purpose of the paper. Clearly identify the
      study being critiqued, by title and authors. Summarize the research
      question, hypothesis (if a quantitative study), and background
      information on the topic from the study’s literature review. Did the
      authors present a well-balanced summary of current knowledge about the
      topic? Is there any apparent bias in the literature review?
  2. Methods
    • Differentiate the research design (experimental or
      non-experimental) and approach (qualitative or quantitative), sampling
      method, and data collection methods. Indicate the sample size,
      variables and measures (if a quantitative study), statistical tests (if
      a quantitative study), coding and analysis procedures (if a
      qualitative study), and any assumptions made by the researchers. Were
      the procedures chosen appropriate for the study? What alternative
      methods would you suggest?
  3. Ethical Aspects
    • Analyze ethical issues pertaining to this study. Did
      the researchers explicitly address ethical issues in the article? If
      not, was there evidence in the report that the participants’ safety and
      confidentiality were protected? Was an approval process by an
      Institutional Review Board or similar ethics review committee mentioned?
      Were any of the practices ethically questionable (deception, coercion,
      etc.)?
  4. Results
    • Present a summary of the results of the analysis
      performed in the study. Did the authors keep their interpretations and
      conclusions separate from the analysis results (evidence)?
  5. Discussion and Conclusion
    • Analyze and critique the conclusions drawn by the
      researchers. Do the conclusions follow logically from the results of
      the analysis? Evaluate the overall efficacy of the research study by
      identifying the strengths and weaknesses of aspects of its design and
      implementation. Identify the limitations noted by the researchers and
      add any limitations you see that were not mentioned in the article.
      Describe the directions for future research proposed by the authors and
      evaluate their appropriateness. Recommend at least one idea for a
      future study that will overcome some of the limitations of this study.
      Keep in mind that this suggested future study will serve as the basis
      for your Final Paper.

Your paper should be four to six pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Utilize a minimum of five sources that were published within the last 10 years and are documented in APA style. These sources should include the article being critiqued, at least three peer-reviewed journal articles, and the course textbook.
