SLP Assignment Expectations

Page Length: 2 to 3 pages

Format           

TUI encourages all students to comply with APA style and format guidelines for proper citation of references.  Use the formatting in your Background page as a model.

Scholarly Content                  

Your case assignments are considered scholarly works. Your final work should include peer reviewed (scholarly) sources.  Please use the formatting demonstrated in your Background section to cite the tutorials and readings from the Module Overview. You should not cut and paste the questions posed and answer them like a “Question and Answer” session.  Your finished paper should read like an academic paper.

Please keep in mind that you should not use sources such as “Answers.com” or “Wikipedia” or “Wikianswers.”  None of these are scholarly sources and they can be “modified” by any registered user which makes them unreliable. You will post your final essay as a word document to the SLP assignment dropbox.
