Article Critique Outline
Below are the major elements required for the peer-reviewed research article critique assignment and their associated point values. Give an overall Introduction and an overall conclusion. Then, for EACH of the four critiques give these major category headings below including:
IntroductionMethodologyData Analysis (called Results in some articles)Communicating Findings (often called Interpretation in articles).The above headings should be included in for each of your four articles in ONE paper, one file. For example, the first level heading will be entitled Introduction and listed under that heading there should be eight second level headings which are included in the rubric below.
If the article being critiqued is missing an element within one or more of the major categories, you should still address it in your critique. For example, if your article does not discuss certain sources of measurement error you believe the authors might have encountered in a study, you should describe them and their potential impact on the study’s results.
A cover page, abstract and reference page are required. Make sure that you use APA style to create the cover page for your paper and to format the abstract and reference page. Title the paper as “Article Critiques” on the cover page and in the APA formatted running head. The abstract should be no more than 250 words.
