How does it relate to prior research on related topics/issues?
Is the theoretical perspective clearly outlined?
Is there an appropriate choice of research methodology?
Is it clear what the conclusions/main claims are?
Are those supported by data?
Does the research contribute to teaching practice/theory development?
