I assume that the article l attached is a quantitative paper, if not let me know so i can attach others .
Critical analysis of the introduction?
does the introduction drive the study?
Authors assumptions and your assumptions?
how might you revise the research questions or improve the questions ?
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. The material that you had attached is not a quantitative study per se. In the case of qualitative vs. quantitative studies - each of these studies are research of subjects undertaken either through experiments or fieldwork. These research studies are often what scientific studies are all about - applying the scientific method to explore a subject. But there are other forms of research studies too - literature review, historical reviews - these use the principles of science to do a narrative study by looking at available materials on the topic. The material that you have attached is not a quantitative study per se - but rather a historical study. It explores already published materials - not much different from the literature review undertaken before an experiment-based or fieldwork-based study. I have thus taken the liberty of choosing another study - one that is quantitative but on the same topic - leadership. I believe this work is a better quantitative study example. I suggest using this simple outline:
1. Study Details
2. Introduction - critical analysis - 100 words
3. Introduction driving the study - 100 words
4. Assumptions - author and reader - 100 words
5. Possible improvements on RQs - 100 words
This should give you at least 500 words which should cover what you need. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. All the best with your studies.
