Critical Evaluation of articlesWatch
I'm just wondering does anyone have any examples of what a good critical evaluation of an artical looks like - particularly Psychology related?Many thanks,Z
Has anyone got an example of what a good critical evaluation of an article looks like?
No - I prefer to own my own credit - just curious as after 15 years returning to study would be keen to see an example of a good one
To add to the above:
does the evidence presented warrant the claims made?
does the author have any bias (e.g. employers, political influences) that might affect their conclusions?
was the article written for a particular audience (i.e. is it in a professional journal or a peer-reviewed journal) that might influence the findings they choose to present?
Also - have a look at the references cited in the article - has the author chosen quotes that reflect the reference, or have they 'cherry picked' a quote to support their own argument that might not be quite what the original author intended.
