Research Analysis

Peer-reviewed studyPeer review refers to a study that has been accepted by a standard journal using blind review by peers in the field. This means that every study should have a fair access to publication based upon quality of the study.
Type of studyTypes of studies can include experimental, case study, longitudinal, cross-sectional, survey, and so forth.
Measurement or assessment toolsA measurement tool is a means that the researchers used to measure or assess the variables under study. Did the study develop assessment tools? Did the study use objective measurement tools? Can the measurement tools be found and used by another researcher? Are the instruments valid and reliable?
Number of participantsThis refers to how many participants were in the study.
How they were selectedSelection process can include the means of recruitment of participants; what was the sampling method or strategy? Describe the population. This could be clients or college students. Indicate sample size.
Number of groupsWas there a control group? The control group does not receive the treatment. Do these participants have the same characteristics and diagnosis as the experimental group participants?
