Week 1 - Assignment

Journal Article Critical Analysis

Utilizing the information gained from your reading of Chapters 4 and 5 of the text, critically analyze one of the five scholarly articles found in Chapter 10 of the text.  Choose an article that best relates to your thesis or could potentially be used to support your position in the Final Capstone Project.

In a critical analysis of the article, complete the following:

  • Provide the formal APA citation of the source.
  • Summarize the article’s thesis and main points in one or two paragraphs, at maximum.
  • Critically evaluate the relevance of the data used to support the thesis of the article.
  • Evaluate the significance of the sources, including whether they are primary or secondary sources.
  • Provide examples of either the presence of bias or lack of bias evidenced by the authors.
  • Critique (as defined in Chapter 5) the accuracy, acceptability, strengths and weaknesses, and overall soundness of the article. In your critique, consider whether or not the authors persuaded you with their viewpoints.
  • Using source “treeing,” as described in Chapter 4.1 of your text, find two related scholarly articles and explain how the articles you found could be used to support or contradict the premise and findings of the article being critiqued.

The paper must be three to four pages in length, excluding title and reference pages, and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least three scholarly sources, which includes the article you are reviewing, two articles that support or contradict the initial article, and any other sources that support your analysis. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
