For your next research assignment, you are to identify a qualitative research article (ATTACHED)–not a summary or literature review, but a bona fide research study–that is in your field of study and read it. After reading it, you will provide the following information about it in a summary that is at least 1 full page:
1) Provide a full reference to the article using the APA Style Manual. (This section does not count toward your word limit.)
2) What is the purpose of the study?
3) Who or what was studied, and when?
4) What qualitative method(s) did the author(s) use? How do you know?
5) What did the author(s) find? Did the author(s) have any theories that they were testing, or were they doing exploratory research to develop theories? If a theory was being investigated, was there evidence to support it?
