Please see attachment below.

As you may recall, evidence-based practice relies on best available evidence, which is
drawn from current research studies. But, just because a research study is published, it
doesn’t mean it is without flaw. Social workers must make value determinations every time
they interact with research they may apply to practice.

Imagine that you are a practicing social worker and encounter a question, issue, or
challenge on which you need to learn more. You search in the social work literature and
find a quantitative study on the topic. As you read it, you ask critical questions, closely
analyze how the study was framed and conducted, monitor efforts toward validity, and
ultimately decide whether to integrate the information in practice.

For this Assignment, you replicate this process of critical evaluation by critiquing a
quantitative research study.
