Question Description

Annotated Bibliography Assignment Grading Rubric Draft Due: 11/02/2020 (3 PARAGRAPHS)

What is an annotated bibliography?

– it summarizes an entire work with a brief description
– it provides a review of the literature published/available on a given topic
– it illustrates the scope and quality of the literature research you have conducted
– assists readers to decide if a source is appropriate for their research
– it can inform the reader about the accuracy and relevance of a piece of research

– it often serves as the first step in a larger research project by helping the researcher organize the material and examine the potential use of each source. It enables the researcher to gain some perspective on a topic and to identify a good research question or thesis.

The annotated bibliography will include a list of references (in standard APA format – alphabetized by author, hanging indent). A commentary follows each listed reference and should include five elements of critical analysis: purpose, summary of argument/evidence, conclusion, credibility, and evaluation or critical analysis.

There are FIVE elements to include in an annotated bibliography:

Main evidence/Argument Conclusion
Critical Analysis

You will be writing a combination of all elements with emphasis on the summative. Notes that the first four elements are non-evaluative; the fifth element is evaluative. I suggest that you confine your evaluation to how you anticipate using this article in answering your PICO question.

Grading Considerations

Include only significant ideas and details

– Brevity (150-200 words per each reference; 2-3 paragraphs maximum)

– Double-spaced

– Conciseness (Make every word count)

– Use complete sentences (Not just phrases)

– No direct quotations. Use your own words. Do not cut and paste directly from a

database abstract.

– THREE references presented, listed in alphabetical order, APA 6th edition

– Structure

Paragraph 1: purpose, main evidence/arguments, conclusion

Paragraph 2: credibility and critical analysis
