Now I want you to convey your understanding of a research article: summary of the article (Question 6) and critique of the article (Question 7). You will need to write one paragraph for each question independently. Here are the requirements for your writing:
a) Write no more than 10 sentences, the max word count is 250.b) In-text citation and direct quotes are not needed.c) You cannot directly copy and paste the sentences/phrases (expect professional phrases) from the original article. You must use your own words (so called “paraphrase”) to summarize. Each student’s writing should and must be different even for group members in the same group. Copying and pasting is regarded as plagiarism behavior.d) Font: Times New Roman; Font size: 12; Spacing: Double
6. Write one paragraph to summarize and paraphrase a) the design the authors used for their project, b) identify the independent and dependent variables, c) talk about how the authors carried out their study (the methods), and then d) summarize the results. Make sure to follow above-mentioned requirements.
7. Write one paragraph to address reliability and validity of the study. Specifically, how reliable and valid is the study? Why? Make sure to think of what reliability and validity mean and apply to the study. Merely mentioning it is valid or reliable is not enough – you have to give plausible reasons to support your ideas. Make sure to follow above-mentioned requirements.
