Writing assignments are judged on the quality of the response. Word count is NOT one of the criteria that is used in assigning points to writing assignments. However, students who are successful in earning the maximum number of points tend to submit writing assignments that are 350-500 words (1-2 pages) per question.Your writing assignments will need to be typed double-spaced, using a standard font and 12 point type size.
The majority of your response should be your own original writing based on what you have learned from the textbook. Be sure to provide a citation and a reference for any materials used, including the required textbook. The following points are designed to help you understand how to provide proper citations and references for your work:
- Sources are listed in two places.
- The first, a citation, is briefly listed within your answer. This includes identifying information that directs the reader to your list of references at the end of your writing assignment.
- The second, a reference, is at the end of your work in the list of references section.
- All sources cited should follow APA style and provide enough identifying information so that the reader can access the original material.
