Be proofread and contain minimal to no grammar errors, misspellings, incorrect APA formatting, or typographical errors Cover all components denoted in the Critique Outline below Article Critique Outline Below are the major elements required for the peer-reviewed research article critique assignment and their associated point values. Give an overall Introduction and an overall conclusion. Then, for EACH of the two critiques give these major category headings below including: Introduction Methodology Data Analysis (called Results in some articles) Communicating Findings (often called Interpretation in articles). The above headings should be included in for each of your articles in ONE paper, one file. For example, the first level heading will be entitled Introduction and listed under that heading there should be eight second level headings which are included in the rubric below. If the article being critiqued is missing an element within one or more of the major categories, you should still address it in your critique. For example, if your article does not discuss certain sources of measurement error you believe the authors might have encountered in a study, you should describe them and their potential impact on the study’s results.
