  5. Review the rubric for the grading criteria.

The assignment includes the following components:

  1. Title Page
  2. Introduction
    1. Introduce the practice problem.
    2. Discuss sources of research evidence identified in Weeks 3, 4, and 5.
  3. Analysis of the Practice Problem (1-2 paragraphs)
    1. Present the significance of the practice problem.
    2. Present the prevalence of the practice problem from the selected articles.
  4. Evidence Synthesis: Using the three articles (2 quantitative and 1 qualitative), write a synthesis of evidence to address the selected practice problem. In the synthesis of evidence include the following:
    1. Identify the main themes and salient evidence that emerge from the sources. (Cited)
    2. Compare and contrast the main points from all sources. (Cited)
    3. Present an objective overarching discussion of evidence about the practice problem.
  5. Appraisal of the Evidence to Address the Practice Problem: Include the following:
    1. Identify the level of evidence.
    2. Provide a quality rating of the evidence.
    3. Appraise and support the suitability of the evidence to address the practice problem.
  6. Selection of a Translation Theory or Model (1-2 paragraphs)
    1. Present the components of the theory.
    2. Discuss how stakeholders are integrated into the design of the theory or model.
  7. Conclusion
    1. In one concise paragraph, provide a clear and logical conclusion summarizing the paper.
