- The data collection strategy
- The data analysis tools that were used
- A summary of the findings
- A statement of how this article will support your proposed study
Present your work in a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document that follows the following format:
- Reference the source in APA format.
- Follow the reference with a single block paragraph of 250–350 words comprising your annotation (summary, evaluation, and reflection).
- The whole block should be double-spaced and indented.
- Repeat for the next article—don’t forget that your articles should be listed in alphabetical order just as you would on a standard APA reference page.
