All assignments must be completed as Word documents. If you do not have Word you canuse Microsoft WordPad and use the rich text format (.rtf extension).2. All assignments must be prepared in the APA format, including references.3. Cover page. Use a single cover page that contains:a. the title of the assignmentb. your name4. Margins. All page margins should be the default margins for your word processing program.Use only the LEFT margin justification setting.5.Page numbering. Please use page numbering for all pages except the cover page.6. Spacing/Font. All papers should be single-spaced only (this includes spacing betweenparagraphs) and a 12 point font.7. Direct quotes/ paraphrasing. Direct quotes and paraphrasing MUST be referenced and citedusing APA guidelines. Although there is no limit on how many citations are in the paper, I willuse limits of 15% for quotations and 25% for unoriginal wording for this course. When morethan one quarter of a paper seems to be unoriginal, it usually indicates a problem. Even ifsources are properly cited and some of the words are changed, it raises the question of howmuch original thinking went into the paper. There is a big difference between starting with ablank page and writing your own thoughts, and building the paper around quotes,paraphrased sources, and the altered wording of another author. You are encouraged to usetextbook concepts as you attempt to explain in your own words the answers to theassignments rather than relying heavily on quoted material. Try to think about how you wouldexplain your answer to someone who has not taken a managerial economics class. Highscores on the originality report in Turnitin are not just a result of plagiarism, they can alsoresult from an incorrect quotation/citation methodology or from using words that have beenrearranged from your sources. If you use someone elses work you must cite and reference itappropriately.8. References. You must include a separate References page in APA format with each paper.Any source that is used to develop your paper must be included in this section.9. File Name. The file that you submit to the Dropbox is the one that your instructor will grade.To facilitate the grading process, please save your file name as lastname_assignment name(e.g., caldwell_chapter 1 case study) so that when you upload the file it will be obvious to mewho the file is from once it is downloaded for grading.Use of Turnitin: You will be submitting your term paper to a Dropbox that is linked to Turnitin.
