1. A woman gave birth to a healthy 7-pound, 13-ounce infant girl. The nurse suggests that the client place the infant to her breast within 15 minutes after birth. The nurse is aware that the initiation of breastfeeding is most effective during the first 30 minutes after birth. What is the correct term for this phase of alertness?
First Period of Reactivity
The first period of reactivity is the first phase of transition and lasts up to 30 minutes after birth. The infant is highly alert during this phase. The transition period is the phase between intrauterine and extrauterine existence. The second period of reactivity occurs approximately between 4 and 8 hours after birth, after a period of sleep.

Snow avalanches can be a real problem for travelers in the western United States
Snow avalanches can be a real problem for travelers in the western United States and Canada. A very common type of avalanche is called the slab avalanche. These have been studied extensively by David McClung, a professor of civil engineering at the University of British Columbia. Suppose slab avalanches studied in a region of Canada had an average thickness of μ = 68 cm. The ski patrol at Vail, Colorado, is studying slab avalanches in its region. A random sample of avalanches in spring gave the following thicknesses (in cm).

This form of assignment is naturally challenging and rather confusing. It is no wonder why students may begin to feel overwhelmed with figuring out how to write an article critique.
To help you get your task done with ease, we have prepared a simple 3-step guide on how to summarize and critique an article:
Step 1: Reading the Article
First of all, to critique the article, you need to read it carefully. For a better outcome, it is recommended to read the piece several times—until you fully understand the information presented in it. Next, you need to address the following questions:
1. Why is the article’s author considered an expert in their field?
What makes a particular author’s opinion sound valid? Is the author knowledgeable about the topic? What do other field experts say about the author? Is the article’s author covered in academic praise or not taken seriously?
3. Who is the article’s target audience?
Is the article geared towards a general audience? Or does it appeal to a specific group of people and use language that is only understandable to that audience?
Found Yourself in a Situation Where You Type “PLEASE WRITE MY ESSAY”?
Professional writing help is right here.
Step 2: Collecting Proof
The first step will help you read and understand the piece, look at it from a critical point of view, and reflect upon it. Now, when you have an idea about which way you should be heading in your critique paper, it is the time to start gathering evidence. Here are the main steps you should undertake:
1. Define Whether the Author Is Following Formal Logic
One of the key things to look for when writing an article critique is the presence of any logical fallacies. Establishing that the author’s general idea follows logic is not easy, but it is an essential step to coping with the task.
Often, undereducated people have some common logical fallacies. An example of this is to accept certain information based on the feelings and/or emotions it evokes, rather than focusing on the supporting arguments.
Here is a list of some common examples of logical fallacies with brief explanations of each:
- Ad hominem – when the author attacks someone who is expressing an opinion with the goal to discredit the other’s point of view.
- Slippery Slope – when the author claims that an action will always end up to be the worst possible scenario.
- Correlation vs. Causation – when the author concludes that since actions 1 and 2 occurred one after the other, then action 2 must be the effect of action 1. The problem with such a statement is mostly because the author draws conclusions about the correlation between the two actions without looking deeper to see the real causes and effects.
- Wishful Thinking – when the author believes something that is not backed up by any proof. This issue typically occurs when someone believes the given information is true because it makes them feel good.
2. Search for Any Biased Opinions in the Article
Another step is to evaluate the piece based on the presence of biased opinions. The thing is that people often pick sides of an argument based on the outcomes rather than the evidence. If the outcome makes them feel bad in any way, they can search for any proof that would discredit it and, thus, make them feel better.
Just like any other written assignment, a critique paper should be formatted and structured properly. A standard article critique consists of four parts: an introduction, summary, critique, and conclusion. Below is a clear checklist to help you grasp the idea of how a good paper should be formatted:
So, you were assigned to write a critique paper for a journal article? If you are not sure where to start, here is a step-by-step guide on how to critique a journal article:
- Pick a piece that meets the instructions of your professor.
- Read the whole article to grasp the main idea.
- Re-read the piece with a critical eye.
- Define how qualified the author is on the chosen topic. What are the author’s credentials?
- Reflect on the research methods used. Are the methods the author chose appropriate and helpful for answering the stated research question(s)?
- Evaluate the results. Are there any signs of the generalizability of the outcomes?
- Look for any bias in the article. Is there any conflict of interest or proof of bias?
- Define the overall quality of the research work. Does the article seem relevant or outdated?
- Pay attention to the sources used. Did the sources back up their research with theory and/or previous literature related to the topic?
Struggling to find the strong and weak points that can shape your critique? Here is a simple checklist to help you understand what to critique in a research article (separated by sections):
- Does the author make a problem statement?
- Does the problem statement correspond with the focus of the study?
- Is the problem stated researchable?
- Does the author provide background information regarding the problem?
- Does the author discuss the significance of the problem?
- Does the author mention variables and their correlations?
- Does the author have decent enough qualifications to perform this particular study?
2. Review of the Relevant Literature
- Is the review of literature comprehensive?
- Are all references cited properly?
- Are most of the sources used by the author primary sources?
- Did the author analyze, critique, compare, and contrast the references and findings contained in them?
- Does the author explain the relevancy of his or her references?
- Is the literature review well organized?
- Does the review competently inform the readers about the topic and problem?
- Does the author specify key research questions and hypotheses?
- Is every hypothesis testable?
- Are all hypotheses and research questions clear, logical, and accurate?
- Does the author describe the size and main characteristics of participant groups?
- If there is a sample selected, does the author specify its size and characteristics?
- Is there enough information on the method of selecting a sample used by the author?
- Are there any limitations or biases in the manner the author selected participants?
- Does the author specify the instruments used?
- Are the chosen instruments appropriate?
- Do the instruments meet general guidelines for protecting participants of the experiment?
- Did the author obtain all of the permissions needed?
- Does the author describe each instrument in terms of reliability, purpose, validity, and content?
- If any instruments were developed specifically for this study, does the author describe the procedures involved in their development and validation?
- Is there any information given in terms of the research design used?
- Does the author describe all of their procedures?
- Are the specified design and procedures appropriate to investigate the stated problem or question?
- Do procedures logically relate to each other?
- Are the instruments and procedures applied correctly?
- Is the context of the research described in detail?
- Did the author present appropriate descriptive statistics?
- Did the author test all of his or her hypotheses?
- Did the author make the inductive logic used to produce results in their qualitative study explicit?
- Are the results clear and logical?
- Did the author provide additional tables and figures? Are those easy to understand, relevant, and well organized?
- Is the information from the presented tables and figures provided in the text as well?
As you go through all of these steps, you can transition to writing. When writing your critique paper, you should make a critical evaluation of the research article you have read and use the evidence collected from the piece. To help you structure your research article critique properly, here is a sample outline of a critique of research for the article The Effects of Early Education on Children’s Competence in Elementary School:
1. Bibliographic Information
- Author(s): M. B. Bronson, D. E. Pierson & T. Tivnan
- Title: The Effects of Early Education on Children’s Competence in Elementary School
- Year of publication: 1984
- Source: Evaluation Review, 8(5), 143-155
2. Summary of the Article
- Problem statement: Do early childhood education programs have significant and long-term impacts on kids’ competencies in elementary school?
- Background: To perform well in elementary school, children need to possess a variety of competencies.
- Hypothesis: Early childhood education programs decrease the rate of children who fall below the minimal competencies defined as necessary for effective performance in the second grade.
- Dependent Variables: mastery skills, social skills, and use of time; Independent Variables: Brookline Early Education Program; Controlled Variables: mother’s level of education.
- Research Design: A Quasi-experimental design, with a post-test only comparison group design, with no random selection of children, assignment to treatment, or control group.
- Sampling: The study engaged 169 students into the BEEP program. Students were selected randomly from the same second-grade classrooms and matched by gender. Also, the group was divided into children who continued their BEEP program (104) and those who moved elsewhere but were still tracked (65).
- Instrumentation: For the research, the authors used a specially developed tool – the Executive Skill Profile – to help detect and track students’ mastery, social, and time use skills.
- Collection/Ethics: The observation took place in Spring, during the students’ second-grade year. On different days (between three and six weeks apart) the observers recorded behaviors of all children for six 10-minute periods. Duration and frequency of behaviors were also recorded.
- Data analysis: The researchers conducted a series of tests to examine any significant changes in mastery, social, and time use skills between matched pairs of children (those who were engaged in BEEP and those who moved elsewhere).
- Authors’ findings: The study showed that children who were engaged in the BEEP program performed better on tests and showed better mastery and social skills. There were no significant changes in students’ time use skills. The early education program made a difference at all three levels of treatment for students whose mothers have college educations. However, the same program made a difference only at the most intense level for students whose mothers don’t have college educations.
- Possible Threats to the Internal Validity
- History: Was not controlled as the comparison children may have not spent their entire lives in the same area as the treatment students.
- Maturation: Controlled. Students were matched by gender and grade.
- Testing: The observers recorded students’ behaviors within 3-to-6 week periods. This fact may have influenced their behaviors.
- Instrumentation: The tool used may have been a subject to bias from the observers’ perspective.
- Selection bias: All selected students volunteered to participate in the study. Thus, the findings could be affected by self-selection.
- Experimental mortality: Students who left the area were still tracked as a part of the treatment group, though they should have been evaluated separately.
- Design contamination: It is possible that children in the comparison group learned skills from the students in the treatment group since they all were from the same classroom.
- Possible Threats to External Validity
- Unique features of the program: The program was available both for community residents and non-residents.
- Experimental arrangements: Brooklin is an affluent community, unlike many others.
- Is the reviewed article useful?
- Does it make sense?
- Do the findings of the study look convincing? Explain.
- Does the study have any significance and/or practical value for its respective field of science?

As Demand increased from 2011 to 2012, the EOQ’s also increased
2993 3869 29.27% 387 440 13.70%
2335 3006 28.74% 329 373 13.37%

625 832 33.12% 183 212 15.85%
So, if Annual Demand doubles, the EOQ will increase by sqrt(2)
2. Brodie is uncertain if the costs presented in case Exhibit 2 are appropriate for determining the
EOQs. What changes would you recommend, and why? Should the cost of the three idle part-time
workers be included when the production line is down? Using the 2012 annual demand, and your
recommendations, recalculate the EOQs for the five SKUs. (2.5 points)
In set up costs, the cost of part time workers should also be included, as they are idle at that time.
Assuming the salary of each part time worker to be half that of full time worker
So, Total salary of 3 part time workers, during idle time of 1 hour = 3*0.5*23.5 = $35.25
So, new set up cost = $63.7 + $35.25 = $98.95
In carrying cost, storage cost was considered as 0%, which should be more because, there is always an
opportunity cost of storing one inventory over another.
So, considering storage cost as 2%, new carrying cost = 6% + 2% + 3% = 11%
Some of the basic assumptions of EOQ are debated
• The demand is not uniform throughout the year, which may lead to stock outs
• The order of new batch takes time and is not done instantly. For this case, the ROP should be adjusted
to include the lead time to place order

2. Lead is toxic, but do you know why? Lead is toxic mainly because it preferentially replaces other
metals in biochemical reactions. In so doing it interferes with the proteins that regulate blood pressure
(which can cause development delays in children and high blood pressure in adults), heme production
(which can lead to anemia), and sperm production. Lead also displaces calcium in the reactions that
transmit electrical impulses in the brain, which diminishes the ability to think and recall information.

4. Illegal immigrants pay local sales taxes, and many of them also pay state, local, and federal income tax
and Social Security tax. They also purchase items from local merchants, increasing the amount these
merchants pay in taxes. In addition, they work for low salaries, which increases the earnings of their
employers and the amount of taxes these employers pay. Thus, it is not correct to say that illegal
immigrants contribute nothing to the communities in which they live.
a. Argument; conclusion: It is not correct to say … communities in which they live.
