Critical analysis is an evaluation of the arguments being made in scholarly texts. It involves forming a critical opinion (your own argument), which is created through examining all sides of various arguments, through reflecting on issues in the scholarly texts in a thoughtful, clear and well-balanced manner. This involves making a reasoned judgment of arguments being made, by identifying both false and/or biased assumptions, and credible and convincing arguments, based on evidence. So your own argument can agree with and/or challenge the arguments being made in the scholarly texts. You will support your own argument by bringing in examples other than those being made in the scholarly texts.
