Knowledge of correct APA format.
A large number of students do not provide correctly formatted APA references. Through observation, students fail to format article and journal titles correctly.
I will implement activites that increas awareness of correct APA format. This will be done with interactive activites and quiz.
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.
If the activities and quiz are affective, I will adopt these as regular practices in my classes.
