Based on your understanding how would you rate the technical quality of the study in the article? For example was the specific research design appropriate?

Based on your understanding how would you rate the technical quality of the study in the article? For example was the specific research design appropriate? Was the research design appropriately executed? Do you have reason to question the credibility of the findings? If so why?Explain

 

Part A: Technical:

Refer to the relevant sections of Chapters 15-16 for this exercise. Based on your understanding how would you rate the technical quality of the study in the article? For example was the specific research design appropriate? Was the research design appropriately executed? Do you have reason to question the credibility of the findings? If so why?

Part B: Application:

Imagine that you are considering a new program for science teaching at your school. You may take the perspective of a proponent of the program and use the article as evidence for the program explaining why it supports your view OR take the perspective of an opponent of the program and use the article as evidence for why it won’t work. It’s ok to use your imagination as to what the program is or is not. Support your argument from the article.
