Journal Article assessment

What type of sampling they used ( simple random sampling, systematic random sampling, stratified sampling, purposive sampling, or cluster sapling)? Clearly explain your answer regarding the type of sampling it is.

2 questions: why do you think the sampling is adequate or not? Explain.

7. Explain why you think generalizability is appropriate or not.

8. is the most important question. Use critical thinking skills to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the sample and sample procedures.

For this assignment, construct an APA formatted paper (including title page and reference list) – from two to three pages (double-spaced). After reading Chapter 11 in Houser, review the article for assignment three posted on the class Moodle site.

Answer the following questions for the article in a separate section with an appropriate APA heading. Report the following information (if applicable):

1) type of sample (random, non-random, stratified, convenient….)

2) source of sample (how did they gather their sample? From what pool did they gather? Use specific numbers if available)

3) demographics or description of sample (who was the sample made up of? include actual final sample size)

4) adequacy of sample – in your opinion

5) exclusionary criteria (who was excluded from study?)

6) nature of informed consent – how was it given?

7) sample’s appropriateness for generalizability – Can the findings be generalized? Why or why not?

8) overall strengths and weaknesses of sample and sampling procedure
