This week’s reading focuses on the analysis aspect of research when critiquing articles. While you have been identifying articles each week, you have examined various elements that ultimately culminate in the analysis phase. Researchers analyze so they can draw conclusions and report findings of their research. The critical thinking exercises you have been completing along with these writing exercises are ideal companions to prepare you for your own research and your culminating project, the ADP. You will want to consider the variables that interest you as you continue searching for and selecting articles that may support your own studies. Either way, analysis is a critical step in the research process and this assignment will further propel you and your success.
