Find an article in a newspaper or magazine (or the online equivalent) describing a recent study in which the researchers collected data through observation or an experiment to draw a conclusion.  A simple poll (like “43% of Americans like to eat sushi”) is not sufficient; you should be looking for something describing a significant research study.  Some examples (don’t limit yourself to these):
an experiment testing a new drug or medical procedure
a study linking a food or exercise with causing or reducing the risk of a disease
a study about how some new teaching approach improves learning
a study about how people behave (example: a study showing incentives can cause us to be less efficient)
NOTE:  If your article does not give any information about how the statistics/data were obtained, find a different article or dig deeper.  Often, in a “popular interest” article, they will provide a link at the end to the scientific paper on which the article was based.
Give a brief summary of the article’s findings (statistics) (5 pts)
Discuss whether the article provides enough information to determine the validity of the (statistical) conclusions (5 pts)
Whether there is information that would be useful that was left out of the article (5 pts)
A list of things that are missing from the article that would help you determine the validity of the study (4 pts)
Be sure to cite the source of the article that you base this on. Include the web address to the specific article if the article is online. Include the article title, source, and date if the article is not online. (+1 pts for including, -10 pts if missing)
