The other meaning is a shortened writing assignment whereby you write a condensed summary of an academic journal.  For this week, we will focus on writing a scholarly abstract of a quantitative journal. More information about writing an abstract can be found via the web resource “Writing Scholarly Abstracts.”Directions: View the rubric and examples to make sure you understand the expectations of this assignment.  Create a 1 page (more is fine) single-spaced Analysis of Research abstract published quantitative scholarly article related to your topic/research question from week 1. Additionally, this assignment functions just like assignment 2.1 only it reviews a quantitative article instead of a qualitative one.

  1. Bibliographic Citation – use the correctly formatted APA style citation for the work as the title of your abstract, displaying the full citation in bold font.
  2. Author Qualifications – name and qualification of each author conducting the research
  3. Research Concern – one paragraph summary of the reason for the overall research topic
  4. Research Purpose Statement AND Research Questions or Hypotheses – specific focus of the research
