Methods What research method was utilized (quantitative, qualitative)? Were the measurements appropriate for the questions the researcher was asking? Were the measures in this research clearly related to the variables in which the researchers (or you) were interested? If human subjects were studied, do they fairly represent the populations under study? Results What is the one major finding? Were enough of the data presented so that you feel you can judge for yourself how the experiment turned out? Did you see patterns or trends in the data that the author did not mention? Were there problems that were not addressed by the author?
