The Course Project must be comprehensive and follow the following analytical stages.

  1. There are four sections in this Course Project and are due at the end of Weeks 2, 4, 6, and 8. At the end of Week 8, you will submit a complete report containing all sections along with a cover page, table of contents, body text with appropriate subtitles, references page, and appendices. There is a separate reflection document which students will complete individually and submit to the appropriate Dropbox.
  2. Each section should be two- to three-pages in length with appropriate references shown on the references page. The final report should be 8- to 12-pages in length not including the cover page, references page, and appendices. If embedded images are used, they should be sized appropriately and integrated with the text.
  3. Sections should be formatted according to DeVry’s APA guidelines. Refer to Doc Sharing for the DeVry Manual on APA as well as other supporting documents.
  4. Even though this is not a scientific-type writing assignment and is mostly creative in nature, references are still very important. At least five authoritative, outside references are required (anonymous authors or web pages are not acceptable). These should be referenced following APA guidelines.
  5. Appropriate citations are required following APA guidelines.
  6. All DeVry University Policies are in effect, including the Plagiarism Policy.
  7. Please post any questions about these papers in the weekly Q & A Forum.
  8. Your report will be graded on quality of research, quality of paper information, use of citations, grammar, and sentence structure (see rubrics below).
