For this assignment, students will research (3) Peer Reviewed Scholarly articles on any criminal justice topic that utilizes any of the statistical methods we have learned in this course. After reading and reviewing the article the student will produce a written summary of each of the three articles. The summary for each should contain:
- An abstract of the article and a reference citation.
- A summary of the study’s findings and conclusions.
- A discussion of the statistical methods used in the study.
- A discussion of how the statistical methods used informed the study’s results.
The articles can be obtained from any source as long as it is a peer-reviewed article. I would recommend accessing the NCJRS website and using the internal search engine to locate studies that use specific statistical methods. The site can be accessed at: https://www.ncjrs.gov/wal.html (Links to an external site.).
