Each pap.. needs to be between 800-1,000 words- no more and no less.
You must also use 12-point Times New Roman font.
You need to save your file as either Microsoft Word format or rich text format (.rtf) in order for the summary to be uploaded to Webcourses. It is your responsibility to ensure that your file is saved correctly and in the correct file format before the deadline. It is also your responsibility to ensure that you can successfully upload your article summary into the system prior to the deadline. Do not wait until the last minute to upload your article summaries in case you experience technical problems.
Your pape.. will automatically be submitted to Turnitin upon submission, to determine how another author’s work was used in the assignment. Make sure you take notes while reading the selected article in your own words. Do not copy and paste directly from the selected article because matches to other authors’ works of 30% or more will result in an automatic zero (0) for the assignment.
At the top of your summary, you must include your name, the name of the article you selected, the name of the journal that the article was taken from, name of the authors of the article, and your total word count. An example is below:
Name of article:
Name of journal that the article was in: Journal of Educational Psychology
Your summary should not include any direct quotations from the article you selected. Put everything in your own words and do not summarize the abstract section of the article.
You should summarize a recent research journal article from one of the American Psychological Association (APA) journals listed in the table below. Please note that you will receive a zero if your summary is on a pap.. that is not from one of the journals listed below and/or it is not clear from your title page whether you used one of these journals.
