Purpose of The Article Critique Paper

1). Psychological Purpose

This paper serves several purposes, the first of which is helping you gain insight into

research papers in psychology. As this may be your first time reading and writing papers

in psychology, one goal of Paper I is to give you insight into what goes into such papers.

This article critique paper will help you learn about the various sections of an empirical

research report by reading at least one peer-reviewed articles (articles that have a Title

Page, Abstract, Literature Review, Method Section, Results Section, and References

Page—I have already selected some articles for you to critique, so make sure you only

critique one in the folder provided on Canvas). This paper will also give you some

insights into how the results sections are written in APA formatted research articles. Pay

close attention to those sections, as throughout this course you’ll be writing up some

results of your own!

In this relatively short paper, you will read one of five articles posted on Canvas and

summarize what the authors did and what they found. The first part of the paper should

focus on summarizing the design the authors used for their project. That is, you will

identify the independent and dependent variables, talk about how the authors carried out

their study, and then summarize the results (you don’t need to fully understand the

statistics in the results, but try to get a sense of what the authors did in their analyses). In

the second part of the paper, you will critique the article for its methodological strengths

and weaknesses. Finally, in part three, you will provide your references for the Article

Critique Paper in APA format.

2). APA Formatting Purpose

The second purpose of the Article Critique paper is to teach you proper American

Psychological Association (APA) formatting. In the instructions below, I tell you how to

format your paper using APA style. There are a lot of very specific requirements in APA

papers, so pay attention to the instructions below as well as Chapter 14 in your textbook!

3). Writing Purpose

Finally, this paper is intended to help you grow as a writer. Few psychology classes give

you the chance to write papers and receive feedback on your work. This class will! We

will give you feedback on this paper in terms of content, spelling, and grammar.
