Please remember that you should be discussing your article using your own words. You should not copy and paste information directly from your article, as this would be considered plagiarism.
Also, I ask that you do not include any direct quotes from your article in your paper. Instead, please discuss the article in your own words. Please let me know if you have any questions about how to write about the article using your own words. Also, please see the plagiarism information link for additional information about plagiarism.
Please write the title of your article at the beginning of your paper. Because you will be writing about one article using your own words, you do not have to use citations in this paper.
Please answer all of the following questions about your article. The questions are divided by the four major sections of your article: introduction, method, results, and discussion. Within each section, you will be answering questions that help you summarize your article, and questions that help you evaluate/critique your article. Please let me know if you have any questions about any aspect of this assignment!
FROM THE INTRODUCTION SECTION OF THE ARTICLE
This section introduces the topic, discusses past research on the topic, and outlines the author/authors’ hypothesis.
Your summary of this section: In your own words, please describe some of the major points the author/authors make in the introduction section. Include a brief description of the past research the author cites, as well as a description of why the author/authors are conducting their research, and what the author/authors expect to find.
Your evaluation of this section: Did the author/authors clearly describe their purpose and hypothesis? Why or why not? Does the author/authors’ hypothesis make sense? Why or why not? Did this section convince you that this study is meaningful/important? Why or why not?
FROM THE METHOD SECTION OF THE ARTICLE
This section provides details about how the author/authors conducted the study.
Your summary of this section: In your own words, please describe how the author/authors conducted the study. Who were the participants? What types of methods did the authors use (self-report, behavioral observation, or both)? What was the procedure of the study? Try to stick with the big picture here. For example, you don’t have to give me the details of specific questionnaires that the participants filled out, but you could say that the participants filled out a questionnaire that assessed their self-esteem.
Your evaluation of this section: Did the author/authors clearly describe the participants of the study? In your opinion, given the participants used in the study, can the results of the study be generalized to other groups of people? Why or why not? Did the author/authors clearly describe how they did the study? Did you gain a thorough understanding of what it was like to be a participant in this study? Did the author/authors do anything that didn’t seem to make sense? If so, what?
FROM THE RESULTS SECTION OF THE ARTICLE
This section is probably the most complicated section. It’s the section that discusses the statistical analyses that the author/authors conducted. I don’t expect that you understand the statistics that are presented in this section, but hopefully you can gain a general understanding of the results of the study.
Your summary of this section: For this section, just tell me generally in your own words what the results of the study were. Even though this section is often complicated, the author/authors should have a few basic sentences in this section that describe what they found.
Your evaluation of this section: Did the author/authors include a few clear, simple sentences that described their results?
FROM THE DISCUSSION SECTION OF THE ARTICLE
This section reviews the results of the study, discusses how the study confirms or does not confirm past research findings, and offers ideas for future research.
Your summary of this section: In your own words, please describe what the author/authors concluded, whether or not the findings support past research, and what the authors suggested should be studied in the future.
Your evaluation of this section: What is the major, “take home” message of this study? Did the author/authors clearly convey the major, “take home” message of the study? In your opinion, what are the implications of this study? In other words, why is it important or meaningful in some way? In your opinion, how can the information in this study be used to benefit people in some way? Based on the results of this study, what is one idea for future research on this topic?
Remember to be careful that your description of your article is in your own words. For this assignment, you should not directly quote anything from the article. As a reminder, there is information linked on the previous page about plagiarism that you may want to read before completing this assignment.
