Evaluating health claims | bio | Association of Chief Academic Officers

Instructions

In this assignment, you will apply what you learned about the scientific method to evaluate the validity of two different health claims. There are three file attachments for this assignment. There you will find and read the GetAnAnswerNow.com posting, a scientific article about zinc’s effect on colds, and a table with a short essay question for you to fill out.

Read the Hemila, 2011, a published scientific paper, and the GetAnAnswerNow.com health claim, which is a fictional posting on the internet.

Fill out the table titled “Evaluating Health Claims” to help you determine how scientific each claim is. The table will help you to decide:

Which steps of the scientific method were used?
Which steps of the scientific method were not used?
Do you feel that the scientific method was sufficiently used in each article to give credibility to its claims? Why or why not?
Answer the short essay question below the table and save the completed assignment to your computer and upload it as a Word file to the Assignment drop box titled “Evaluating Health Claims.”

Please, see attached Rubric to make sure that you include all items that will be graded.
