NOTE: 10% of your grade will depend on adherence to APA Style formatting guidelines.

Your paper should:

  • Use APA Style formatting.
    • Use the sample paper posted in the APA Style section of the Hondros Library as a guide.
    • Before submitting your paper, use the interactive APA Formatting Checklist to make sure that you meet all of the APA Style requirements for this assignment. Answer the questions honestly, and you will be directed to resources to help you complete this aspect of the assignment.
  • Be numbered as the prompts above are numbered, for ease of grading.

    • A References page is the last page of your paper and should contain more detailed information about each citation in your paper
      • A citation is where, in your paper, you give credit to the source of your information. As a general rule, anything which is not common knowledge or your own thoughts/ideas needs to be cited.
  • Be typed, double spaced, have 1 inch margins, and be in a 12-point Times New Roman font.
