Literature Review Template and Rubric

In this review, provide a careful, critical, and thorough explanation of relevant prior work on your project. It should be divided into two parts: background and previous work. The background is the basic material that you need to know to begin your research. Previous work builds on the background and is research that is directly relevant to your project. Your focus should be on the previous work. Do not simply list previous work; critically evaluate it and explain how your work is different and better.

Here is the grading rubric for the literature review. It will be graded on a 10 point scale, distributed as below.
