Select five empirical articles from peer-reviewed journals that:  • you consider critical to your understanding of your area of dissertation research • all address a particular phenomenon and attempt to contribute to theory about it 
Part 1

1. Describe each study, including: • the research problem, questions, or hypotheses • the research purpose • type of design and elements of the design (e.g., sample, data analysis, operationalization of constructs) • threats to validity and if and how they were addressed • the findings and their implications 
2. Critically evaluate each study: Does the author make a compelling case for the meaning and significance of the findings? 

Part 2 Write a literature review that explains what is known and not known about the phenomenon based on a critical evaluation of the five studies. 

Part 3 Develop a research question that addresses one of the unknowns you identified in Part 2 and sketch a quantitative or qualitative study that can answer the question about what is unknown and contribute to theory (in some sense of theory you discuss in Question 1). 

 • the research purpose

 • type of design and elements of the design (e.g., sample, the type of data you need to collect and how you will collect it, data analysis)

 • the strengths and weaknesses of your envisioned design and methods 

• quantitative: threats to validity and how your design will address them • quantitative: the constructs you will measure and what you will do in order to determine how to operationalize them (you need not identify specific measures)

• qualitative: your means of ensuring the quality of your findings

• justification for why your chosen design and methods are more appropriate for your research question than alternatives you have considered 

 • your methods of data analysis

 • how the data you collect will enable you to answer your research question and contribute to theory 

The structure of your paper should be as follows:  Title page  Body (10-15 pages, no more or less; APA Style; use appropriate headings for organization of the paper)  References (APA Style)
