In order for research to have scientific merit in your field of study, it must contribute new, meaningful knowledge to your field. In a few sentences, summarize the new knowledge that was contributed by this research. Then, write one-to-two paragraphs explaining how this knowledge is meaningful to your field. Also, address the importance of the application of this knowledge by professionals in real-world settings.

 

 

In order for research to have scientific merit, it must advance the theories in your field of study. In one-to-two paragraphs, describe the theoretical foundations of the research and how the research advanced them. For example, the research may have tested, confirmed, extended, or modified a theory. Perhaps it generated a new theory.

 

 

Describe the sample and the sampling procedures; that is, the way in which the participants were selected. Avoid quoting the study, and use your own descriptions. Evaluate whether the sample and sampling procedures were appropriate for the methodology and approach.

 

 

Describe the data collection procedure. This would start after participants gave informed consent, and end when the participants have completed the study. Avoid quoting the study and use your own descriptions. If your methodology was qualitative, you might be describing interview procedures, for example. If your methodology was quantitative, make sure you describe any group assignment methods or any repeated measures, such as a pretest or post-test. Evaluate whether the data collection procedure was appropriate for the methodology and approach.

 

 

Describe the data analysis procedure. If your methodology was quantitative, you need only describe the procedure or the statistical tests. Avoid quoting the study and use your own descriptions. Evaluate whether the data analysis procedure was appropriate for the methodology and approach.

 

 

Describe the findings and the conclusions the researchers made. Evaluate whether the conclusions allowed the researchers to answer the research questions and address the research problem.

 

 

Provide an APA-formatted references list, compiling all of the resources you have used for the course project thus far.
