LC-7310: Critical Review of Research A

The purpose of the Critical Review of Research is to help students to develop their skills at identifying, critiquing and synthesizing resources in relation to a specific review question. Through the course of this Learning Achievement students demonstrate their ability to conduct a review and appraisal of the foundational, conceptual, and research studies in a chosen field of interest. The CRR includes a general review question (which may be underpinned by realist, interpretivist or humanist approaches), a fully-documented search process, a set of 20-30 sources that represent the knowledge base of the chosen field of study, and a critical appraisal of both individual entries and the field at large. It is comprised of two parts - the CRR-A (Analysis) (of 25-40 pages in length including the matrix) and the CRR-B (Synthesis) (of 15-25 pages in length). The CRR-A (Analysis), contains the following elements: ·A statement of the background rationale for the review , its aim, and a working review question which will guide the literature search; ·A description of the search process; ·The inclusion criteria used for selecting the resources to be reviewed; ·A list of the articles, books, dissertations, or other works chosen for intensive analysis presented in a matrix. This should include (20-30) foundational works, conceptual papers, books and dissertations, and empirical articles.
