This section will provide a
general introduction and review relevant literature to the topic being studied.
The research studies being critiqued will also be introduced in this section.
In the Introduction, the research hypothesis associated with each study should
also be clearly defined.
In this section, the research
method and statistical approaches for each of the studies being critiqued will
be presented. This section should include a discussion of all statistical tests
conducted and other relevant information, such as the sample size, and any
assumptions noted on the part of the researcher. In this section, the student
should describe of all of these factors, and suggest alternatives when they are
In this section, the results of the statistical tests
performed in each of these studies should be presented and critiqued. It is
appropriate in this section, to discuss limitations or to critique the
interpretation of the results provided in each study.
This section will compare the efficacy of the research
studies that are presented on the topic chosen by the student. The strengths
and weaknesses of each study should be mentioned in this section. Based on
these studies, suggest future research directions. Additional forms of
statistical analysis should be included as part of the suggested future
