Brian Rogers MBA 6610 8 January 2010 Critical Thinking and Transferability: A Review of the Literature By Gwendolyn Reece Good Research? Skimming through the article at first glimpse, it was apparent that this article did not meet the criteria for being good research. Honestly, I had trouble following the article. A large majority of it was due to the grammar use, inconsistent ideas, and complex word choice. I decided to take a more thorough look at the article and analyze it based on the characteristics of good research outlined in Chapter 1 on pages 13-15. First, as mentioned in the text, good research has a clearly defined purpose. In the article, Gwendolyn Reece, does provide the purpose of her research at the beginning. The purpose of the research is to determine whether there is undeniable evidence that students can transfer critical thinking skills, learned in school, to novel situations, including those encountered in everyday life. Secondly, in conducting research, the researcher is responsible for outlining, in sufficient details, the procedures used.
