Writing a Critique

Please find below some tips for preparing your critique.

  1. First look at the criteria sheet which you will find in the Learning@Griffith website under Assessment tab. Navigate to Assessment 1 and then scroll down to folder saying Assessment 1. Open this and find the criteria sheet for marking – this will tell you what you need to include.

 

  1. The critique should set out:

 

–          What article are you reviewing

–          A brief summary of the article including what it’s aim was, what was studied, and the theory it is testing.

–          A summary of the key principles and concepts of the theory  and how these are applied to the problem

–          Analysis of the strengths and limitations of the theory with respect to its application

–          Discuss the implications for public policy and/or future research.

 

  1. Structuring and Referencing

–          The critique should have a clear structure  which is readily identifiable

–          While this is not a research exercise, and therefore is not asking for lots of references, where you are using references (including the article being reviewed) ensure references use the APA system.

–          Spell and grammar check!!

 

  1. Please ensure that the critique is 1.5 or double spaced in size 12 font.
