Critique Paper Requirements (See ECLearn for full details)
You must find a peer-reviewed empirical article related to the Hock reading you have chosen. 
  • Empirical: An empirical article is one in which the authors have conducted some type of observational or experimental study, and they are reporting the results.
  • Quick tip: Most empirical articles in psychology are divided into sections: Introduction/background, Methods, Results, Discussion.  If you find an article with these sections, there’s a good chance that it’s an empirical article. Literature reviews that summarize vast bodies of research without reporting actual data are not acceptable.
  • Peer-reviewed: This means that the source has been reviewed by experts in the field, who have deemed it acceptable quality for publication.
