Journal Article Critique
Identify the research method (quantitative or qualitative) used in the study. Do you feel it is an appropriate approach, given the topic and research questions? Why or why not?
Evaluate the creditability of the author and journal, as well as the different perspectives given in the article, while considering the following questions:
Is the author considered important in the field?
Is the journal or publisher well known?
Does the article present an opposing point of view on the topic?
Why it is important to recognize high quality research in the educational psychology field?
Written communication: Writing is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
Length: 3–5 pages, not including the title or reference pages.
APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to APA (6th ed.) style and formatting.
References: A paper of this length should include scholarly references. At the graduate level, you are responsible for determining the appropriate number of references. The majority of them should be original research articles published in peer-reviewed psychology journals (for example, those journals published by the APA). A few review or survey articles are also acceptable.
