Research content analysis is a document which identifies the merits and drawbacks of a research project or paper. It can be conducted at any level, whether the subject is a research project at the school level, or a high level enterprise which needs a complex and nuanced analysis. Certain analytical parameters remain the same in all cases, like impact of research, depth of study, methodology and so on.
Sample Research Content Analysis:
Comparative study of Shakespeare’s Tragedies
Course component for: Renaissance Drama
Course Number: PG 4.5
Course Coordinator: Professor Deborah Law
Research content analysis parameters:
- Style: The term paper shows great promise in terms of style. The researcher elucidates his argument emphatically, and with conviction which is encouraging.
- Depth of research: The research needs to lessen his dependence on canonical reviews and research work and focus more on his own creative inputs to the topic. This is extremely important as it will allow him to create a solid foundation of critical thinking and reasoned argument.
- Form: The MLA style has been used with dexterity by the student. However there were lapses while citing internet reviews and articles. These must be rectified.
- Content: The content per se of the research project is well elucidated. It is a logical and well argued paper which has been adequately supplemented by critical commentary. However, more practice is needed by the student in striking a balance between his own opinion of the text and the critical material he has read.
