A discussion of how research has changed the practice from its inception to its current form.
A research-based assessment of the continued viability of the practice. Does the research indicate that the practice should be continued? Keep in mind Cohen’s first question regarding the topic of study.
A research-based discussion of how continuing or discontinuing the practice might shape the future of higher education.
