Articles Analysis Matrix by analyzing the content each article

I am working other projects.

PART I:
Read the Anderson & Shattuck (2012) and Henson, Hull and Williams (2010) articles on the Week 3 Electronic Reserve Readings list.
Complete the Empirical Research Articles Analysis Matrix by analyzing the content of each article and addressing the points listed on the matrix.
Post the completed matrix to the Assignment Discussion for review by your peers.

PART II:
Select four published research articles related to your general research interest and field of study. Select two quantitative research studies and two qualitative research studies. You may substitute a mixed methods study for one of the qualitative or quantitative studies. Ensure that each of the studies you selected was published in a peer reviewed journal.

PART III:
Write a 1,400-to 1,750-literature review in which you analyze each study from Part I and II. Consider following points while constructing a logical and critical literature review.
What is known about the research topic you are interested in? From which angles has this research topic been studied?
What is not known about your topic? How can you justify a new research study from this literature gap?
What germinal theory is related to your topic? How does this germinal theory guide you toward developing a research question that is derived from literature gap?
Which research paradigm serves as the foundation for each of the selected articles?
What questions have you generated from the literature review that might be worth pursuing further?
Review the Week 8 assignment rubric for critical analysis and evaluation as you consider which questions might be worth pursuing further.

//The below section is divided into three sections in which the first section gives the Empirical Research Articles Analysis Matrix by analyzing the content of two articles given and addressing the points listed on the matrix. Further, in the second section, four published research articles related to the present general research interest and field of study are selected. Moreover, literature review is also presented in which the analysis of each study from Part I and II is conducted.//

Part I:

(See Table in Attached file)

Part II:

The four selected, published research articles related to the general research interest and field of present research study are as follows:

Article1: Combining design-based research and action research to test management solutions" by Andriessen (2007)

Article2: Can Health Professionals learn Qualitative Evaluation Methods on the World Wide Web? A Case Example" by Steckler et al., (2001)

Article 3: Why Design-Based Research is Both Important and Difficult" by Dede (2005)

Article 4: Designing and Conducting Mixed Methods Research" by Creswell & Clark (2007)

//In the above section, the objective is to analyze the content of two articles given and address the points listed on the matrix. In part II, four articles are chosen related to the general research interest and field of the above study. Further, the below section highlights the critical analysis of the articles chosen in part II and I. //

Part III:

The article, "Design-Based Research: A Decade of Progress in Education Research" by Anderson & Shattuck (2012), discusses the design-based research (DBR) method in education research. The purpose of the present research study is to analyze the efficacy and role of DBR in the educational context. According to Anderson & Shattuck (2012), design-based research increases the validity of the research study and focuses on the design of the research study and its significant intervention testing. Design-based research is very useful and helpful in the educational context, and its use has increased. Further, authors in the research study also discussed some problems in using design-based research in the educational research despite its benefits. One of the critiques of design-based research discussed by the authors is that if the researcher is involved in design, development, conceptualization, pedagogical approach's research and implementation then the design-based research cannot make the reliable assertion. Further, the various challenges of bounding the design-based research project's temporal scopes make the research worse as it requires multiple iterations. The question generated from the literature review, which might be worth pursuing further is, "To which extent design-based research should be pursued in the education context". The present research study gives the learning of DBR and supports that its usage is ...
