The reference list must be alphabetical by author’s last name. If there is no author, other format rules apply; again, check the APA Manual for proper citation and reference format. Points will be taken off for improper citation and reference listing.
2. You must use 2 professional sources other than your textbook for each assignment. Be sure the sources are credible and professional. Wikipedia type sources are not acceptable. Advocacy websites or forums are also not acceptable. If you find information that has no author, try to find the information in another location with an author or a government site. If you can’t the information may not be credible.
3. Only 25% of your paper can be quotes from other sources and must be properly cited. All ideas of facts taken from other sources must be cited.
4. Unlike the formal research paper assignment, in Written Assignments you may use personal forms, opinions, experiences, and other stories. This assignment is a mix of research and opinion. Just be sure to cite any statements of fact from outside sources.
