We designed an empirical article analysis test for Research Methods (RM) I and II students to assess students’ ability to identify key variables, ethical issues, generalizability concerns, and design weaknesses, and critically analyze the conclusions. Results indicated significant improvement in these skills for RMII students compared to RMI students (t(158)=5.10, p< .001).
