APA ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS OVERVIEW The purpose of this APA Assignment is for y

The purpose of this APA Assignment is for you to become familiar with your APA Publication
Manual, how to use it, where to find information in it, and what kind of information it
contains. Use information available throughout the entire Publication Manual. Learning this
information will help you with required formatting in future assignments in this course, and in
future Psychology courses at Liberty University.
This APA Assignment must have a title page, plus 2 – 3 pages of content, and a reference page,
and it must be in current APA format throughout.
Part 1 – Create a title page.
Based on the information in your current APA Publication Manual, create a properly formatted
title page in current APA format that contains the following:
1. Title – format the following text in proper current APA format as your title: “lessons
learned about writing style.”
Hint: “lessons learned about writing style” as you see here is deliberately not in proper
current APA format.
2. Include all the paper elements for an APA student title page.
Part 2 – Create the body of the document.
Include proper pagination and margins throughout the document.
Re-write the title of the document at the beginning of the page that begins the body of your
document, using proper current APA formatting.
Write an introduction.
The next 2–3 pages of your document will contain headings (provided by you based on the
questions below), with answers (provided by you). Refer to your course materials as needed to
create a level one heading, in current APA format, using the following phrase: “APA formatting
concepts” written in correct APA formatting.
Hint: The phrase “APA formatting concepts” as you see here is deliberately not in current APA
format. If you would like to see examples of properly formatted levels of headings, refer to in
your APA Publication Manual. Also, notice how the levels of headings are demonstrated within
the sample student paper in your APA Publication Manual.
Next, you will need to create an appropriate level two heading for each of the questions below.
Your level two headings will serve to summarize the question that is being asked. Each level two
heading must be relevant, be something you created, brief, and clearly identify each question you
are answering. Do not copy/paste the assignment questions as your headings.
When writing your answers, use complete sentences and proper margins, indentations, spelling,
grammar, and punctuation, as required with current APA format.

communication is, give examples of different types of personal communications. Include
details for what you do with the reference and why, and for an in-text citation.
2. What is the purpose for using different levels of headings in a properly formatted
document, and how do you know which heading to use? Use your APA Publication
Manual to find the answers to this question.
3. In your own words, explain what a DOI is. Why is it important to you as a researcher?
(Hint: Be sure to explain this in your own words to show that you understand what you
are explaining.) Note: This question has two parts, explaining what it is, and explaining
why it is important.
4. Visit the Jerry Falwell Library website. Browse around on pages that will lead you to
information about topics that you are studying. Based on what you find on these pages,
what kinds of resources can you access through the Jerry Falwell Library? Note: Be
thorough; this is not a brief answer.
5. Suppose you need a resource that is not directly available in the Jerry Falwell Library.
Explain how you would acquire a source that you need. Identify at least three ways you
can find scholarly sources.
6. Refer to your Publication Manual and provide the page numbers where you will find
information on how to format each of the following. Provide information and examples
for in-text citations as well as the information for each reference. As you write your
answers, use a brief level three heading to introduce each new item (no bullet points), and
use complete sentences in your answers.
 Religious and classical works
 Your Introduction to Research textbook
 An unpublished manuscriipt such as a graduate student’s thesis at a university
 The APA Publication Manual itself
 A scholarly journal article with a DOI
Remember, organize this section of the assignment with appropriate levels of headings. Do not
number the questions. Do not include any bullets. Use complete sentences in your answers.
Part 3 – Create your reference page.
You will create a reference page, using proper headings, page numbers, margins, indentations,
etc., for the current APA format for a reference page. Use the APA Publication Manual as your
source for the content and formatting. Your reference page will list the properly formatted
reference for each of the following:
 Your Introduction to Research textbook
 The APA Publication Manual
Save the document using your last name in the file name, as: yourlastname_APAmodule3. Save
your document as a .doc or .docx file.
