The critique should include both a descriptive and evaluative summary. The descriptive summary will present an overview of the purpose, research questions, methodology (where applicable), findings, and research/policy recommendations presented in the article. The evaluative summary will critique research and identify the strengths and weaknesses of the article. The critique will also explain how the article relates to topics/issues related to race, ethnicity, gender and administration of justice studied in the course. Specific references to course readings and the article are required. Use APA reference format for in-text references and the list of references at the end of the critique.
This assignment will include a title page and contain 3-5 double-spaced pages (exclude the title and reference pages from the page count)
