APA Practice Assignment

| January 6, 2016

The purpose of this assignment is to give you practice in preparing a references page using APA format. While it is worth only 25 points, it will give you important practice and feedback before you have to format a references page for the documents you will write in this class.

This assignment is to use the screen captures I have provided in the “Screen Captures for APA Practice Exercise” document and format the information into a references page using proper 6th edition APA format. Note: You do NOT need to look these items up or do further research. All the information you need is shown in the screen captures.

Read my lecture on “Clarification of APA Retrieval Information Formatting” that was posted this week. This explains the problems with using certain URLs in your retrieval information.

Use your Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) as a reference book for further information, if needed.

Note: References should be listed in alphabetical order and double-spaced, using a hanging indent. If you need help with formatting line spacing and a hanging indent in Word, check the second page of the APA Checklist.
