Summary

This thoroughly updated new edition of the bestselling text train students-potential researchers and consumers of research-to critically read a research article from start to finish. Containing twenty-five engaging articles of both ideal and flawed research, it discusses how to assess them in terms of soundness of the design and appropriateness of the statistical analyses. Each article is accompanied by evaluative questions that grouped into four categories: (1) the rationale and purpose of the study, (2) design of the study, (3) statistical analyses of the data, and (4) the conclusions reached by the author(s). The authors' ultimate goal is to ensure that students cast a skeptical eye when reading any research report. This text is designed primarily for graduate-level students across the social, behavioral, and health sciences.
