Research Critique, Part 1 guideline
for students

To write a

conducted, respond to each of the questions listed under the headings below.
Do not answer the questions with a yes or
no; rather, provide a rationale or include examples or content from the study
to address the questions.

CRITICAL APPRAISAL
GUIDELINES: QUALITATIVE STUDY
Problem Statement
·
Identify
the clinical problem and research problem that led to the study. What was not
known about the clinical problem that, if understood, could be used to improve
health care delivery or patient outcomes?
This gap in
knowledge is the research problem.

How
did the author establish the significance of the study? In other words,
why should the reader care about this study? Look for statements about
human suffering, costs of treatment, or the number of people affected by
the clinical problem.

Purpose and Research Questions

Identify
the purpose of the study. An author may clearly state the purpose of the
study or may describe the purpose as the study goals, objectives, or aims.

List research questions that the study
was designed to answer. If the author does not explicitly provide the
questions, attempt to infer the questions from the answers.
Were
the purpose and research questions related to the problem?
Were
qualitative methods appropriate to answer the research questions?

Literature Review

Did
the author cite quantitative and qualitative studies relevant to the focus
of the study? What other types of literature did the author include?
Are
the references current? For qualitative studies, the author may have
included studies older than the 5-year limit typically used for
quantitative studies. Findings of older qualitative studies may be
relevant to a qualitative study.
Did
the author evaluate or indicate the weaknesses of the available studies?
Did
the literature review include adequate information to build a logical
argument?

Conceptual / Theoretical Framework

Did
the author identify a specific perspective from which the study was
developed? If so, what was it?
When
a researcher uses the grounded theory method of qualitative inquiry, the
researcher may develop a framework or diagram as part of the findings of
the study. Was a framework developed from the study findings?
