Write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:

Critiquing the validity and robustness of research featured in journal articles provides a critical foundation for engaging in the evidence-based practice. In Weeks 5 and 6, you explored quantitative research designs. In Week 7, you will examine qualitative and mixed methods research designs. For this Assignment, you critique a quantitative and either a qualitative or a mixed methods research study and compare the types of information obtained in each.To prepare: Select a health topic of interest to you that is relevant to your current area of practice. The topic may be your Course Portfolio Project or a different topic of your choice. (I have included my course portfolio document in the additional materials section)Locate two articles in scholarly journals that deal with your portfolio topic:1) Select one article that utilizes a quantitative research design and2) select a second article that utilizes either a qualitative OR a mixed methods design. These need to be single studies not systematic or integrative reviews (including meta-analysis and metasynthesis). You may use research articles from your reference list. If you cannot find these two types of research on your portfolio topic, you may choose another topic.Locate the following documents in this week’s Learning Resources to access the appropriate templates (which I have attached in the additonal materials section), which will guide your critique of each article:Critique Template for a Qualitative StudyCritique Template for a Quantitative StudyCritique Template for a Mixed-Methods StudyConsider the fields in the templates as you review the information in each article. Begin to draft a paper in which you analyze the two research approaches as indicated below. Reflect on the overall value of both quantitative and qualitative research. If someone were to say to you, “Qualitative research is not real science,” how would you respond?To complete this Assignment: Complete the two critiques using the appropriate templates.Write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following: Contrast the types of information that you gained from examining the two different research approaches in the articles that you selected.Describe the general advantages and disadvantages of the two research approaches featured in the articles. Use examples from the articles for support.Formulate a response to the claim that qualitative research is not real science. Highlight the general insights that both quantitative and qualitative studies can provide to researchers. Support your response with references to the Learning Resources and other credible sources.Reminder: The School requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, and references. All papers submitted must use this formatting.Combine all three parts of this assignment into one Word document including both critique templates and the narrative with your references. Submit this combined document.(I put 4 references but you can use however many as you want whether it’s less than four or more than four; also put 3 pages but if you only get 2 and then the two templates that is also fine; I also attached my course portfolio project label Wk5 if you wold like to use that topic-if not I’m ok with whatever you choose) thank you so much!!
