This week, you will write a review of literature based on the technology you are investigating for your Course Project. A review of literature may be defined as an analysis of published information in a particular subject area. It has some similarities to an annotated bibliography, which you have completed in a previous class, but differs in important respects. An annotated bibliography focuses on annotations, or summaries, of sources. In contrast, a review of literature analyzes the sources, draws connections among them, and notes changes in thinking over time. A review of literature will focus on the following questions.
What are the key points of agreement among the sources?
What are the key points of disagreement among the sources?
Do any of the sources appear to be outliers? In other words, are there any sources that bring up issues, or make assertions, that the other sources do not discuss?
Which sources appear to be the most powerful or influential? Are there sources that all of the other sources deem highly authoritative?
Are there any sources whose assertions seem dubious, illogical, or unsupported by the facts?
How has thinking changed about your topic over time? Are there beliefs that have fallen out of favor?
Successful assignments will do the following.
Analyze at least five sources from reputable publications that can be found in the DeVry Library
Demonstrate points of similarities and differences, note patterns, and evaluate source quality
Be approximately 750–1,000 words in length
Be formatted per current APA standards, including a separate title page and references page
Don’t forget to submit your assignment for grading.
