Paper Mechanics
Include a reference page for source(s): The textbook is always a reference.
Follow APA formatting for writing, citing, and the reference page.
Put the paper title information on a separate page.
Do not include extra lines between paragraphs, and so forth.
Grammar, punctuation, spelling, and so forth will all be taken into consideration when awarding points.
Proofread your paper before submitting. Spell-check is not foolproof.
Re-content, if you make a statement, for example, “All people who break the law should improve their communication skills to stay out of jail,” you need to substantiate that statement. If that statement is not your own thought or a statistic, cite it. If it is your opinion, state that and explain what led you to that opinion. Provide enough information to validate and explain your statement of opinion.
Treat these assignments as real-world situations. This will give you the opportunity to practice how you would research and provide information as an HR professional.
