Write a critique of a previous research dissertationSelect a research dissertation that has been completed as a result of previous years of this course and write a critique of it. A dissertation does not just consist of a written report – it is a project that entails actually doing research. The written report is a description of that research work, so your analysis will not only assess the quality of the writing, it must also discuss how well the research process has been carried out, explained and justified.

Briefly look at several dissertations before deciding which one to review – choose something that interests you if possible, so to make this an enjoyable exercise. A review of a written work that is not a masters dissertation is not suitable for this assignment.

This exercise will develop your ability to identify and analyse how well the writer of the dissertation has fulfilled the criteria for a good research dissertation. The main aspects you should consider are the following:

1.    Overall view. Identify, explain and evaluate the basic argument presented in the dissertation, discuss its consistency and critique the quality of the overall presentation. Is the abstract a good summary of the dissertation?(20 marks)

2.    Background and research problem. How well has the literature been reviewed? How has the research problem emerged and been refined into a specific research question, hypothesis or statement of aims? How rigorous is the referencing of sources?(20 marks)

3.    Research methods. How well has the selection and explanation of relevant research methods been discussed in relation to the issues to be investigated? Have decisions about sampling, case studies or other selections been explained? Have the ethical issues been sufficiently explored?(20 marks)

4.    For business research dissertations, how clearly is the process of data collection described and the results presented? How well is the analysis of the data carried out and the outcomes discussed?(20 marks)

For artefact design dissertations(DMP), how robust is the design process and its management? Are technical challenges reported and confronted? How clearly are the intended and actual outcomes evaluated (critical analysis)?  (20 marks)

5.    Quality and importance of conclusions. Do the conclusions relate exactly to the questions/hypothesis/statement of aims? Do they clearly emanate from the outcomes? Is their significance discussed and are the limitations to the research mentioned? Are realistic suggestions given for future research?(20 marks)
 Total:100 marks

You will be marked on how perceptive and clear thinking your review of these aspects is, and in addition, the quality and clarity of your own writing and presentation.
