How to populate an evidence table?

POPULATING AN EVIDENCE TABLE

Introduction

Finding, organizing, appraising, and synthesizing evidence are all essential skills that scholar-practitioners must master. An excellent tool to facilitate these tasks is an evidence table, which enables you to capture and summarize key information from multiple sources and serves as a concise and well-organized overview of the literature.

Becoming familiar with the evidence table and its use now will prove invaluable as you progress through your program and begin working on your doctoral capstone project. Using the evidence table to document and analyze the evidence you’ve gathered in a literature search will enable you to develop a coherent synthesis of your findings.

Preparation

Compile the peer-reviewed studies you’ve collected over the past five weeks as you’ve researched organizational challenges that present opportunities for evidence-based improvement.

Instructions

Analyze the peer-reviewed research studies you’ve collected and add key information to the Evidence Table [XLSX]. Then, critically appraise three of the studies and synthesize your findings.

Unused columns on the worksheet can be hidden from view. This five-minute video shows you how to hide and unhide columns in an Excel worksheet.
