Question description

THESE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS. I HAVE ATTACHED THE TEXT THAT I CHOSE FOR WEEK ONE AND THE ASSIGNMENT YOU JUST COMPLETED.Critique of a Research Study
Read the full texts of the study you selected in Week One and the
sources you included in your Week Two bibliography. Evaluate each source
and write a critique of the study using the textbook and articles from
the Week Two assignment to support your evaluation. Use the following
section headings and content in your paper.Introduction State the purpose of the paper. Clearly identify the study
being critiqued, by title and authors. Summarize the research question,
hypothesis (if a quantitative study), and background information on the
topic from the study’s literature review. Did the authors present a
well-balanced summary of current knowledge about the topic? Is there any
apparent bias in the literature review?
Methods Differentiate the research design (experimental or
non-experimental) and approach (qualitative or quantitative), sampling
method, and data collection methods. Indicate the sample size, variables
and measures (if a quantitative study), statistical tests (if a
quantitative study), coding and analysis procedures (if a qualitative
study), and any assumptions made by the researchers. Were the procedures
chosen appropriate for the study? What alternative methods would you
suggest?
Ethical Aspects Analyze ethical issues pertaining to this study. Did the
researchers explicitly address ethical issues in the article? If not,
was there evidence in the report that the participants’ safety and
confidentiality were protected? Was an approval process by an
Institutional Review Board or similar ethics review committee mentioned?
Were any of the practices ethically questionable (deception, coercion,
etc.)?
Results Present a summary of the results of the analysis performed
in the study. Did the authors keep their interpretations and conclusions
separate from the analysis results (evidence)?
Discussion and Conclusion Analyze and critique the conclusions drawn by the
researchers. Do the conclusions follow logically from the results of the
analysis? Evaluate the overall efficacy of the research study by
identifying the strengths and weaknesses of aspects of its design and
implementation. Identify the limitations noted by the researchers and
add any limitations you see that were not mentioned in the article.
Describe the directions for future research proposed by the authors and
evaluate their appropriateness. Recommend at least one idea for a future
study that will overcome some of the limitations of this study.  Keep
in mind that this suggested future study will serve as the basis for
your Final Paper.
Your paper should be four to six pages in length (excluding title and
reference pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the
Ashford Writing Center. Utilize a minimum of five peer-reviewed sources
that were published within the last 10 years and are documented in APA
style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. These sources should
include the article being critiqued and three of the sources from your
Week Two assignment, as well as the course textbook.THE ARTICLE  BIBLIOGRAPHY OF RESEARCH
