In the Week 8 folder, you watched YouTube lectures on best practices for constructing problem statements and literature reviews. As you know, you have a problem statement draft due based on the topic and research questions that you have put forth. The purpose of this assignment is twofold. The first purpose is to increase your ability to identify problem statements in refereed journal articles. The second purpose is to increase your ability to identify the important aspects of a problem statement. Please read the assigned article and focus only on the problem statement (Introduction) section of the article. Please answer the following questions.

4. How do the researchers use past and current literature to support their study?
