Jo Ellen Picard, an advanced graduate student in the department, is currently using the method, and Szadocski asks her to evaluate the paper. Picard judges the paper poorly for having incorrectly interpreted findings the method yielded. Szadocski gives this opinion in the review without mention of her reliance on Picard regarding the methods.
