Develop: Understanding of APA Formatting Conventions
Evaluation Title: APA Formatting: You’re the Instructor
Let’s imagine you are a college instructor! Congratulations! Now it’s time to get to work.
Your students have submitted research papers in APA style. Using the Purdue OWL website (Links to an external site.), the APA Style website (Links to an external site.), and/or the Herzing library APA resources, identify at least 8 APA formatting errors in the student paper below.
Explain each error in a numbered list, using full sentences for each.
After you complete your assignment in a Word document, save your work, and then you will need to attach the completed document to your submission. The process will be similar to making an attachment to an e-mail:
- Click Submit Assignment (upper right corner)
- Under Attach File, click on “Browse My Computer.”
- Look up your saved document, and click “Open.”
- Click “Submit.”
Your assignment submission should be a Word document that fully adheres to the instructions listed above. Be sure to proofread your assignment.
