    Content, clarity, and organization of ideas
    The paper clearly explicated the state of the knowledge/science of a particular phenomenon of interest. The paper should be in APA (6th ed.) format with title page,

    abstract, and references with a majority of primary sources. The paper should not exceed 15 pages, excluding title page, abstract, references, tables, and any figures.

    (Place tables, figures, etc. in the appendices).The paper should be free of grammatical errors.
    Professor comments:

    References:  If you decide to use direct quotes (I suggest you NOT do this often if at all!), you should see APA for the pages about quotes in order to avoid

    plagiarism.  Your references should be mostly primary sources but may include some secondary sources as appropriate.  These citations should follow precise APA and for

    students not following APA throughout the paper and on the reference as much as 10 points may be subtracted from the final paper.
