Critique of a Quantitative or Qualitative Research Article (15%)
Critique the research study using the appropriate criteria and template below. Follow all
elements included in the template for either a quantitative or qualitative study. Many of
the items on the critique templates may not be addressed in your article; however, you
need to state this critique item was not applicable to this article in your presentation.
Your presentation must be a synthesis of these elements and not simply rewriting each
question and answering it be creative! Grading for each item ranges from 0 to 2 points
(0=incorrect answer or no answer; 1 = partially correct answer (no explanation or
example stated); 2=correct answer, including a correct explanation and/or example). To
receive full credit (2 points), the answer must be correct and must include an explanation
and/or example. Your raw score (earned points) will be converted to a percent grade.
