critical review psychology example
Students often, and sensibly ask for example CRs (critical reviews). Often if you go to the right PAL session, the facilitators will bring theirs in as examples. If you do the reciprocal peer critiquing exericse in your tutorial group(s), where each student reads and comments on two other CRs, then you will have seen examples.
This CR has an especially interesting structure: picking pairs of papers showing opposite findings on each of 3 points, so as to get critical points from the literature; and then adding a conclusion of the reviewer’s own critical conclusions (about the literature).
