Topic: You will write a three-to-four-page paper (excluding the title page and references) on the topic of “multitasking” using two empirical articles. These articles, Bellur et al. (2015) and Spence et al. (2020) will be discussed in class to ensure that you understand the purpose, method, and findings. You will be doing a “mini” literature review of these two studies (A partial citation for the two studies found on the top of the next page). A literature review may serve several purposes including (APA, 2020, p.8):
· Defining and clarify the problem
· Summarizing previous investigations to inform readers of the state of the research
· Identifying relations, contradictions, gaps, and inconsistencies in the literature; and
· Suggesting next steps in solving the problem
