The article must review a specific research study (i.e., with a specific research hypothesis, do not use an article which is a review of the literature).
Make sure that you pull the Unit 4 Assignment grading rubric from the Course Resources to ensure that you are meeting all grading criteria and assignment requirements.
Watch the video at http://ed.ted.com/on/cDhYHA9B#watch to understand what a peer reviewed research article is.
