You must use current APA formatting throughout your paper.

In-text citations are vital for your paper. You will need to cite any and all information or ideas that are not your own. Both of the sentences below are examples to help you correctly cite information. Be careful not to overuse quotes, as this is a form of plagiarism.

  • “If you directly quote, you will need quotation marks along with the page number at the end of the citation” (Gibson, 2010, p. 123).
  • If you summarize or paraphrase a reference, then you do not need to include the page number at the end of the citation (Gibson & Stevenson, 2010).

A grading rubric is provided to ensure you follow the expectations.
