Using the Literature MATRIX
As you read and evaluate your literature there are several different ways to organize your research. One of these ways to organize your work using a “matrix”
No, not this, matrix, but the one attached to this discussion (Appendix G).
This document allows you to compile details about your sources, such as the foundational theories, methodologies, and conclusions; begin to note similarities among the authors, and retrieve citation information for easy insertion within a document.
- Conduct a rapid critical analysis of the five (5) articles (use the articles used in discussion 5).
- Title the discussion with the PICOT question.
- Initial post: Your post should be within a range of 150-200 words and answer the following questions.
- Choose one of the research studies in the Matrix table (Appendix G).
- Provide a brief overview of what the article was trying to do (i.e., the problem).
- What is the type of the study( experimental, cohort, case-study)?
- What was the purpose of the study?
- Describe the sample (who are the participants, how they were selected). Setting (where it happen).
- What is the source of the data? (was a survey, intervention, observation, interviews).
- What were the results? (major findings) (look at the discussion, what was learned).
- Limitations (who funded the research, was the sample too small).
- Peer response: Identify two (2) students that may share a similar question and comment in their literature matrix post. Remmeb
- Cite your references APA 7th ed. (not included in the length of the post).
