Answer all questions as thoroughly as possible:
Is this a Qualitative (non-numbers-based) or a Quantitative (numbers-based) study?
Briefly describe what the researcher(s) was trying to find out with this study:
What are the major hypotheses or research questions of the study (for quantitative studies only)?
Who were the participants in the study? Briefly describe the demographic characteristics (age, gender, location of study, number of participants involved)
What instruments are used to collect and measure data (i.e. test results, surveys, interviews, attendance records, etc.)?
What are the findings of the study? (note: here you will need more than a one sentence explanation – this is the “meat” of your paper and you will need to understand what was determined by the results of the research) Remember: you will find information about the findings that you can understand in the “Discussion” section of the study, thus it’s important that you give a good summary of the study IN YOUR OWN WORDS – Not Copied and Pasted.
What suggestions/recommendations are made by the researcher(s) in terms of applying the findings of the study to society/culture?
How does this study contribute to your understanding of your research question?
NOTE: my research question: The effects of technology use on marketing: How technology (or social media) changed (or affected) marketing methods?
