Question 1 (between 1,000 and 1,300 words) Independent learning after attending

Question 1 (between 1,000 and 1,300 words)
Independent learning after attending lectures is important. Recall that the topic “critical appraisal”
has been discussed in a lecture:
(i) critical appraisal refers to “assessing the methodological quality of a study” and is a key
part in evidence-based education
(ii) note also that critical appraisal is a process within “systematic review”
The design of this question is to enable you to have a more in-depth understanding of systematic
review through a directed-learning concept. Below are more detailed instructions:
i.use any of the search engines (e.g., Google …) and type in “systematic review”
ii. you will find information about “systematic reviews” within different web-pages
iii. read information about systematic reviews from relevant websites and other relevant
materials you can find from other sources (e.g., the Library) — bear in mind that not
everything in the web can be trusted; this question is also designed to test your ability on
selection and judgment.
Then, write an essay on the topic “What is systematic review and critical appraisal; and why are
they important?”
