Assignment 3: Literature Review: Five Articles Abstracted onto the Evaluation Table
This week, you will submit another evaluation table document with five research articles abstracted for your literature review. Although it is expected that a majority of the articles will be part of your final literature review, some may not necessarily be included depending on your evaluation. For example, out of the thirty articles you evaluate during this course, you may only end up including twenty in your final review. The total number of articles you include may also depend on the amount of existing research. Try to shoot for twenty to twenty-five articles as a target for your final review. You will organize the information obtained from the review by paraphrasing and organizing concepts, variables, themes, and data from each article according to the nine headings in the evaluation table.
