Accessing Appropriate Articles

In this course, you will need to access and read different types of articles. Empirical articles describe original
research and typically utilize quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods research designs. Non-empirical
articles are articles that summarize best practices, present cases to illustrate points, offer alternative perspectives
and theories, or suggest new ways of looking at phenomena.

To demonstrate that you understand the difference between empirical articles and the other kinds of published
articles (non-empirical).

articles.
