This assignment does not have to be written in essay format.  You may organize it by section, question number with question text, and then your answer.


APA formatting should be used throughout.  Any time your paraphrase or directly quote a source (such as your article), in-text citations should be used.  A full APA-formatted reference should be included at the beginning or end of assignment.

c.       When asking people to complete the questionnaire, you need to inform them that it is voluntary, and their identity will be kept confidential
