What is this study supposed to add to the Body of Knowledge? 2. Summary of study (3-6 pages) In this section use a descriptive tone, be concise using 1-3 sentences per item. You are welcome to use tables if needed. 2.1. Model (what predicts what, at the conceptual level) 2.1.1 Graphic version of model – if the authors don’t have one, please try to create it yourself) 2.2 Theory/ies used in the study. 2.2.1 Major hypothes(is)(es).

Your overall assessment of the of the quality of the research 3. Critique of study (3-6 pages) This section is your informed commentary on each aspect of the study, and should be heavy on evaluation and assessment, with description kept to a minimum. Use the questions below only as the basis of your critique but customize them to your article’s evaluation. Some sections can be omitted if appropriate. Likewise, new sections can be added. 3.1. Is the relevancy of the study justified? 3.2. Is it clear why each theory was needed and how each theory was used? 3.2.1. Was theory used to formulate hypotheses? 3.2.2. Is the paper consistent?
