Comprehensive Assessment Tracking System

APA References

Saturday, May 8, 2021 to Friday, August 6, 2021
What is the Need/Assessment?: 

Knowledge of correct APA format. 

Describe the necessity for this change: 

A large number of students do not provide correctly formatted APA references. Through observation, students fail to format article and journal titles correctly. 

Describe what will be (or was) implemented to affect change: 

I will implement activites that increas awareness of correct APA format. This will be done with interactive activites and quiz. 

Interpret, compare and describe the results of the change: 

I will compare an assignment before the activities and quizzes to the final paper so see if students now provide correctly APA formatted references. I will also use the quiz scores to evaluate how well they have understood and noticed the most important reference elements. 

After analyzing the information, what are the next steps?: 

If the activities and quiz are affective, I will adopt these as regular practices in my classes.
