1. What hypothesis (or hypotheses) did the researcher(s) test in this study?
2. Briefly* describe the method (subjects, apparatus/ materials, procedure) used in the study. A. For experiments and quasiexperiments:
1) Identify the independent variable(s) that was (were) manipulated by the researcher and its levels.
[In the case of pseudoindependent variables, i.e. ones that could not be directly manipulated (e.g. gender, age, diagnostic category, etc.) state that this was the case].
2) Identify the dependent variable(s), and indicate how it was (or they were) measured.
B. For non-experimental studies identify the relevant variables and describe how they were measured. *The description should be complete enough so that there is no question as to what variables, groups, or measures
3. Describe the results of the study (no need to present statistics, but you should indicate if results were
or were not significant.)
4. Were there any research design or methodological flaws in the study that might threaten its internal validity? If so, what were they, and what would you do to correct them? (How accurate are the conclusions?)
5. Evaluate the external validity of the study. (How generalizable are the results?)
6. What conclusions did the research(s) draw from the results? Do you agree with those conclusions, or is
there some alternative explanation or conclusion that you might draw from the results?
7. Briefly describe a study that might be conducted as a logical follow-up to the work reported in the
article. Why should it be done?
(8. Lastly, be sure to turn a copy of the article when you turn in your assignment.)
