   Submit: Annotation of a Quantitative Research Article This week, you will submit the annotation of a quantitative research article on a topic of your interest. An annotation consists of three separate paragraphs that cover three respective components: summary, analysis, and application. These three components convey the relevance and value of the source. As such, an annotation demonstrates your critical thinking about, and authority on, the source. This week’s annotation is a precursor to the annotated bibliography assignment due in Week 10.  An annotated bibliography is a document containing selected sources accompanied by a respective annotation of each source. In preparation for your own future research, an annotated bibliography provides a background for understanding a portion of the existing literature on a particular topic. It is also a useful first step in gathering sources in preparation for writing a subsequent literature review as part of a dissertation. Please review the assignment instructions below and click on the underlined works for information about how to craft each component of an annotation. It is recommended that you use the grading rubric as a self-evaluation tool before submitting your assignment. By Day 7 Annotate one quantitative      research article from a peer-reviewed      journal on a topic of your interest. Provide the reference list entry for this article in       APA Style followed by a three-paragraph annotation that includes:  A summary An analysis An application as illustrated in this example Format your annotation in Times New Roman, 12-point font, double-spaced.
