Critical Evaluation


When there is a lot of information on the subject area, it is easy to repeat what existing literature already states. This is not a literature review as nothing has been reviewed.

Need to make own comments on literature being reviewed. Should be well reasoned & supported by evidence from literature.

If there are clearly opposing views published, task is easier – put across each view and specify where it has come from.

Support those views with your own using evidence to show how you drew your conclusion.

Literature review meant to support research. Demonstrate the particular question is unanswered by presenting literature where questions arises and showing related work but no answer yet.
