Citation

(Write citation using APA format, just as you would in a reference list. Put articles in alphabetical order by the first author’s last name)

Purpose Statement (quote directly from the study), Sample, and Setting Research Question or Hypothesis

(If the study doesn’t list one, write what the implied RQ or Hypothesis is and label as “implied.”)

Variables

(State independent and dependent variables using bullet points. Note: Participants are not variables)

Design

(Include study design (i.e. meta-analysis, RCT), level of evidence (See the Evidence Hierarchy in Polit & Beck (2014)), other key design features such as use of placebo, blinding, etc.

Outcomes (meaning what the researchers were trying to measure) with Measures and Time Administered (meaning how the data was collected/recorded)

(Do not put the actual data here. That belongs in the Findings column.)

Findings

(Include quantitative data. What are the researchers’ final conclusions based on the outcomes?)
