Are the question/hypotheses consistent with the literature review and the conceptual framework?

 

·         Method:

Research Design

Was the most rigorous possible design used, given the study purpose?

Was the number of data collection points appropriate?

Did the design minimize the threats to the internal and external validity of the study?

 

·         Population and Sample

Was the population identified and described?

Were analyses undertaken to address each research question or test each hypothesis?

Were appropriate statistical methods used, given the level of measurement of the variables, number of groups being compared and so on?

Was the most powerful analytic method used? (E.g. did the analysis help to control for extraneous variables?

 

·         Findings

Were the findings adequately summarized, with good use of tables and figures?

Do the findings provide strong evidence regarding the research questions? Were Type I and Type II errors minimized?

 

·         Discussion:

Interpretation of the Findings

Are all major findings interpreted and discussed within the context of prior research and/or the study’s conceptual framework?

Are the interpretations consistent with the results and the study’s limitations?

Does the report address the issue of generalization of the findings?

 

·         Implications/Recommendations

Do the researchers discuss the implications of the study for clinical practice or further research and are those implications reasonable and complete?

 

·         Global Issues

Presentation

Was the report well-written, well-organized and sufficiently detailed for critical analysis?
