Due: Saturday Module 7Review and critique a peer-reviewed paper, employing the statistical analysis of primary data, from the following list. The journal papers may be found in the Business > ABI Inform/Proquest database in the Baker College Online Library. Write a 1-2 page critique paper that discusses at least the following:
Describe the research problem the author(s) are addressing.
Describe the base literature the author is working from. What previous research or theory does the author go to as a basis for the present paper? You will typically find this in the first few pages of the work, possibly in a section headed “Review of the Literature”. In addition to citing some of the major sources quoted – tell me, in summary form, how the author built his/her work on top of previous writings.
What are the author(s) hypotheses? Often, these will be formally stated in the paper. In some cases, they can be inferred based on the statistical tests being done. If the author gives a weak (or non-existent) hypothesis, read the rest of the paper and infer a hypothesis.
What research method and statistical techniques does the author(s) use? To answer this question, be sure to tell how the authors collected their data (survey, experiment, etc.). What was the sample size? How did they analyze their data? Note that you need not be familiar with the statistical techniques, simply let the class know what technique is being used. Example statistical techniques include regression, ANOVA, t-test, factor analysis, discriminate analysis and others.
What conclusions does the author(s) draw? Does he/she support his/her hypotheses?
Write a brief critique of the work – Is it plausible? Do you see any holes in the development of the hypothesis, the definition of variables, or in the methodology? Is the research of significance to you? The critique should be properly cited, using APA 6th edition.
