Critically analyse the given qualitative and quantitative research papers. Provide a balanced appraisal of what has worked and has not for each paper. Support statements with sources and define key research terms and the pros and cons related to their use. Using the given critical appraisal framework critically analyse both papers. Form conclusions and recommendations for practice either at the end of each appraisal or as a combined version covering both papers analysed. The focus is on research knowledge, understanding and application. Define key research terms used then apply them in relation to the research papers. Use the framework subheadings to facilitate critical analysis and repeat for both papers. Some sections lend themselves more to research appreciation and appraisal such as the methodology, data collection etc so invest in more detail in these sections. Aim, Background and Focus need only be a few sentences. Format your essay under the subheadings of the appraisal frameworks given one for the qualitative paper and one for the quantitative paper.
