Gillette, WY (PRWEB) April 8, 2010
According to Dr. Olin Oedekoven, President of Peregrine Academic Services, many business schools require students to submit their work using APA (American Psychological Association) writing style. Although there are a number of websites with APA writing style tips and examples, to the best of Oedekoven’s knowledge, there is no actual on-line training program in APA. Peregrine Academic Services has created a two-part APA on-line training program. This training will serve any academic discipline requiring APA writing skills.
Those involved in APA writing style should note several significant changes in the APA 6th Edition compared to the 5th edition manual including:
- New end of sentence spacing requirements
- Redesigned formats for all heading levels
- Revised formats for most electronic references
- Changes associated with writing numbers as figures
- Revised requirements for multiple citations of a single reference within a paragraph
- Revised requirements for table captions, table format, and figure captions
Part I of the APA training program consists of a 150-question interactive training program that reviews 17 APA topical areas. Learners are provided with immediate reinforcement and explanation for both correct and incorrect responses to the interactive questions.
Part II of the APA training program consists of a 50-question examination of APA writing style. The online APA training and testing program can readily be incorporated into your early business courses to effectively blend writing business content learning and APA writing skill acquisition. Alternatively, it can be offered as a standalone requirement for students and a faculty development tool for faculty who need to refine their skills in APA writing.
Oedekoven stated the student cost for the online training and testing program is $100 ($75 for the training program and $25 for the APA Writing Style Test). University faculty receive a 50% discount if they wish to take the course or if school administrators require the course for faculty development.
