                             Guidelines for article critiques

You are required to critique two articles chosen from the list above. You are
encouraged to choose articles from different areas. For example, if you picked one
on hearing aid outcome, you might want pick the other from a different area such as
hearing conservation. Use the following guidelines to frame your critique. Keep in
mind that some of these concepts have not been discussed in class yet.

The critiques should be two (2) single-spaced pages in length. Please use a 12-point font
(either Arial or Times New Roman, with no less than 0.5” of margin around the page).

The first page of each critique should contain the following:

1. Article Title:
2. Author(s):
3. Complete Journal Citation (journal name, volume number, page numbers and year of
    publication). Use APA guidelines when citing the journal.
4. Purpose of the study
5. List of names and values of independent variables
6. List of dependent variables
7. Type(s) of sampling used
8. Type of research (True experimental/Quasi experimental/Ex-post-facto)
9. Description of research design (e.g., “2 x 2 factorial, independent group design”) and
    1-2 sentences supporting this classification of design [e.g., “independent variables
    were age (young, old) and gender (male, female) with separate groups used for each
    combination of independent variables”]
10. Descriptive statistics used and examples of each from article:
11. Inferential statistics used and examples of each from article:

On the second page of each critique:

12. Does the Introduction provide a sound rationale and theoretical background for the
    research discussed in the article? Justify your answer.
13. Identify the strengths and weakness of the methodology used. Provide possible
    rationale(s) for why the authors might have used the methods they did. If possible,
    provide alternative methods of testing the hypothesis.
14. Choose one figure OR table, and summarize its main findings. Provide a photocopy
    of the figure or table that is summarized.
15. In your opinion, are the conclusions valid and justified?
16. Identify the threats to internal and external validity and write a summary statement as
    to the “perceived quality” of the study. Does the study represent “sound research”
    that should be incorporated into our knowledge base or clinical practice? Why or
    why not?
