Revision of assignment

Now that you have created a thorough outline, you should continue to expand the outline into an essay format using proper APA style. Additionally, you will need to show competency in constructing a research-based argumentative piece of writing.

To meet that goal, you will need to meet the following requirements:

  • Demonstrate critical thinking and critical analysis skills, including your use of a research based argumentation.
  • Write between 1,000 – 1,200 words. The Cover Page and Reference pages are not included in the word count. No Abstract is required for this APA paper.
    • Papers that do not meet at least 1,000 words are subject to a pro-rated penalty. (i.e. submitting 800 words would result in a 20% loss of grade as 20% of the paper’s word requirements were not met)
  • Effectively organize your essay. Write a clear introduction, thesis statement, multiple body paragraphs supporting the thesis statement, and a clear conclusion
  • No sources should be used in the introduction.
  • Use at least four sources.
    • Using a source means quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing it, including a citation each time it is being used
    • Reference each source you use in your reference list
    • You should use the following sources:
      • Your textbook selection from Weeks 1, 2, and 3
      • Two peer-reviewed academic journal sources from Keiser’s e-Library
      • At least one additional credible source, which may include a reading from your text or the e-Library
      • Contact your instructor if you are unsure as to whether a source will count towards the requirements.
    • If less than four sources are used, 10% may be taken off for each missing source (i.e. using only two sources would result in a 20% loss of grade)
  • No block quotes should be included. Use integrated quotes only.
  • Review rules for summarizing, paraphrasing, and quoting to adhere to the APA format and to avoid “unintentional” plagiarism.
  • Use 3rd person objective point of view only. Avoid 1st and 2nd person point of view.
  • Use academic language and proper grammar and mechanics. Consider using the Online Writing Lab PowerPoint 1 – Alternative Formats or your local campus Writing Studio prior to submitting this paper.


  • Format your paper using 7th edition APA requirements. (No abstract is needed for APA 7 student papers.)
  • No more than 20% of the paper should be from quoted source support.
  • No visuals should be used (i.e. images, charts, graphs, etc.). Use written material only.
  • This paper is due by Sunday of Week 4.
  • Only one submission is allowed. Contact your instructor if you have a problem.
  • Papers submitted after 11:59 PM on Sunday of Week 4 will not be graded without prior approval by the instructor. Review the late policy for Week 4, if approved for an extension. No assignments will be accepted via email. All final essays must appear in the course site to be “eligible” for a grade.
