Description of the hypothesis of the study



For this assignment, you will review a single scholarly article from the APUS Library and summarize what it says about. You don't need to have an abstract, as is typically required for APA style, for this paper but you must include an APA formatted cover page in addition to the References page. The 2-3page requirement does not include the cover or reference pages. 

 Description of the hypothesis of the study

The introductory paragraph will give a brief description of the topic and the article that you will be reviewing.

The article summary will include the following:

 Discussion of the focus of the research

Your review/discussion of the article will include

You don’t have to be a professional expert to write this section. Think about it this way--if you were someone working with children facing the challenges of the disorder you selected to read about and report on, what would you want future researchers to keep investigating that you believe could prove valuable to sufferers and their families? For example, a medical professional or psychologist might be interested in having researchers continue to study how broad a particular diagnostic classification spectrum needs to be to avoid catching too many and too few kids in the diagnostic net (it goes without saying that we would love to be able to diagnose accurately 100% of the time and cure everyone, but we will leave that off the table since it should be everyone’s goal and anyone reading about a disorder could have that cross his/her mind).

Your paper must be written at a college level. This means a minimum amount (nobody often achieves perfection) of spelling and grammar errors that don’t get in the way of following your points; no use of personal first or second person pronouns (“I” or “you”) in your article summary; no personal story sharing or creative writing style wording (papers that begin with a question or “Imagine for a moment that…” or “Webster’s Dictionary defines _____ as…” style openers are fine for some courses but not for this assignment. Simply start with, “This paper focuses on ________” with the topic of your paper in the blank space, and then move on to summarizing the findings of the publication you cite in the paper and the other required elements).

The 2nd part of your paper will include your review/discussion of the article as outlined previously. This section of your paper may include first person writing. Please be sure that your article summary is clear and distinct from your review of the article. Do not intermingle the two sections of your paper.
