The purpose of the annotated bibliography assignment is to give you practice in writing summaries in a scholarly tone that you can use as part of your doctoral study. When you work on your study in the doc study mentoring class, you will be responsible for submitting annotated bibliographies including brief summaries and assessments of the sources. An annotated bibliography will be a valuable asset for you when you sit down to write your doc study and should contain everything you will need in a short succinct paragraph (or two) from each scholarly source/study. If you write the bibliography entries properly, you should be able to cut and paste into your doctoral study. Please ensure you address all components of the assignment so you get an understanding of how to critically summarize a source: Reliability of evaluation of research methods and of the theories and data on which the article is based Appropriateness for intended audience
Authority or background of the author
Limitations, depending on the scope, reliability, age of the document, and bias Usefulness of the source for your purposes
