Why or why not?7.What was/were the limitation(s) and strength(s) discussed by the author(s)? These are usually in the Discussion/Conclusion section of the article. Were there any additional s trengths and weaknesses not discussed by the author(s)? If so, discuss with a professional critique and do not use overly personal opinion-based judgements. A. What conclusion(s) did the author(s) make? B. How can the research findings be applied? If no applications were suggested by the authors, provide ideas for how the findings could be applied. C. Based on this study and past research discussed in the Introduction, what directions should researchers take for future study of this topic? Use your own words to discuss the answers using information from the article. DO NOT use direct quotes or copied material from the article. Instead, paraphrase the source material using YOUR OWN WORDS and cite appropriately in APA format. Do not include the questions. Your paper should be written in paragraph form; it should NOT be a list of the questions and your responses. Your paper will be submitted to CANVAS with enabled by the instructor to check for plagiarism.
