Need sociology help with an Evaluation Article

The purpose of exercise is to conduct a detailed, critical evaluation of the research design, methods and analysis of a study written up and published in a peer-reviewed journal.  Students will be using Wolfer’s (2007) critical questions for evaluating written research to evaluate an article; these questions are provided below. 


Article selection tips:

–  select an article from a peer-reviewed Sociology Journal

–  the article should clearly be written about a study the author conducted

o  a meta-analysis of multiple studies is not appropriate for this assignment

o  secondary data analysis of an existing national data set is OK, but be sure you understand what you are reading
