Please refer to the Module 1 content guide entitled “How Do I Read and Review a Journal Article” for a full review of the instructions on how to find relevant information within published academic research. Within your submission, you must answer the questions listed below. Your submission must be written in essay style, be 3-5 pages in length (double spaced), and must follow the APA guidelines for citations. Please refer to the content guide labeled, “How do I use APA style to Cite my Sources?” in the Research Basics Module for details on how to do this. There is a grading rubric attached so you can understand how your submission will be assessed. You will notice there are two possible scores listed for each category. This is to allow points to be distributed differently if you are reviewing an article with one study compared to an article with more than one study.
