Scoring Rubric
The purpose of this assignment is for the student to learn
to assimilate, analyze, critique, and summarize original research articles. In
other words, select a report of a single, original study.
Course Outcomes
Through this assignment, the student will
demonstrate the ability to:
(CO 2) Formulate and analyze nursing/clinical problems related to
nursing and other disciplines. (PO 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

(CO 3) Synthesize for dissemination the research findings from nursing
and related disciplines. (PO 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11)

Due Date:Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of
Week 3
Total Points Possible: 165 Points
Through this assignment, the student will
a systematic search of relevant databases to find research-based evidence
related to a nursing problem (CO 2);
a summary table of four peer-reviewedquantitative single original studies,
indicating the purpose, sample, design/level of evidence, findings, and
limitations of each (CO 3), within table bullet points are required to present
the information; and
the findings of the four studies as a whole using the usual text format (not a
table) (CO 3).

Preparing the Table
Conduct a PICO(T) search on the
nursing problem related to your practice setting.Select the four most recent peer-reviewed studies
that describe original research in a single study (do not select a
meta-analysis, systematic review of research, or integrative literature
review). Refer to theTypes of Articles Found
in the Nursing and Healthcaredocument in the Course Resource section to
make sure that you are using the correct document.

Construct a table summarizing the four
most credible and recent studies, using the Research Summary template on the
next page (also found in Course Resource Section). Analyze each article and
provide the following information in brief format: purpose of the study; type
of sample and number of participants; design of the study, along with the level
of evidence; findings of the study; and limitations of the study. The use of bullets to present the information
in the table (rather than cutting and pasting information from the reference)
is required. Cutting and pasting
information from the article may result in an evaluated TurnItIn score.

Preparing the Summary
Briefly (4-6 pages; not including cover page and reference page(s)) summarize
the results of the four studies as a whole. Follow this outline:

a short paragraph, restate your research question and describe your search
strategy. (10 points)

of the designs used in the studies presented in your research summary table. (10

do these studies fall on the LevelsofEvidence table? What is the significance
of this information?(10 points)

on these studies, what are the findings? What is the answer to the research
question?How well do the studies answer or fail to answer the question? Provide
rationale to support your answer.(10 points)

was eachsample selected and how many participants in the studies?Is this number
adequate? Why or why not? (10 points)

what are the limitations of the study, and how can these limitations be
overcome in subsequent studies? (10 points)

on these findings, is the evidence that you found on your topic strong enough
to suggest a change in practice or an idea for practice? Why or why not?Please
provide a rationale for your answer.(10 points)

Provide your references, formatted in
APA style, after the summary. Include the doi number for each article. Submit a
permalink of each article you have chosen for this assignment (directions on
how to obtain a permalink are located in the Course Resource section).

Instructions for setting up your paper
in APA 6th edition format.
Look at the example document for this
assignment. Start your paper as you would for any scholarly assignment and use
of APA 6th edition format is required. Copy and paste the table into
your APA paper. This should allow your paper to remain in a vertical format. The vertical (i.e. portrait format) is
required. Your paper should be ONEdocument.Research Summary TableStudent Name:

information in this table should be presented using bullet points rather than
copying and pasting information from the reference. Copying and pasting
directly from the article may result in an elevated TurnItIn score.
