A scholarly research paper focused on either learning or cognition, minimum of 12 pages in paper body length (not including the cover page or references page), double-spaced with 1″ margins on all sides of each page, is required for this course. APA style formatting is required. The assignment should include a title page, abstract, body of paper, and a separate page entitled “References” listing sources used and attached to the end. Papers not in APA format will receive a 10% deduction from the paper score before scoring deduction for other errors. Papers not including any source citations will receive a score of zero. A minimum of 5 articles must be used in the development of the paper and source credited in the paper body and reference page. 10% times the number of articles less than 5 will be deducted from the paper score before scoring deduction for other errors. Only academic, peer-reviewed journal articles obtained through the APUS Online Library can be used for the research paper.
