b) the sample proportion ± the error term
(dont forget to include the confidence level)
3) State the meaning of the confidence interval(s).
4) Can a reported mean of your article data be treated as a value from a population having a normal distribution? Why or why not?
Writing Article Critiques
A written critique includes a minimum of four basic elements:
Identification of the material read (or reviewed).
An abstract of the major ideas.
An analysis of the content.
Implications for the particular course, study or field of interest.
The first “things” to look for in an identified reading are the major ideas and contentions of the author. Try to determine the authors justification for the contentions. Review the supporting data presented. Examine the logic supporting the authors conclusions. Seek out similarities and differences between what is being propounded by the author and those held by other writers in the field.
In summary, what is the gist of contents of the review? Can it be stated in a few paragraphs? What does it mean? What are the implications?
Access the Outline for Initial Discussion Post section to continue.
Your initial discussion post should conform to this outline:
Abstract of Major Ideas – Synthesis of the big ideas of the article reviewed.
Critical Evaluation of Major Ideas
Substantiation of the idea by good logic.
Adequacy of supporting arguments and reasoning.
Degree to which authors point of view agrees with your own.
Implications – What is the meaning of the authors ideas regarding what needs to be done in the
area of interest, i.e., aviation/aerospace, etc.
