Each unit examination includes a written component. This assignment may be in the form of written questions or case study problems. The writing assignment affords the student an opportunity to demonstrate a level of subject mastery beyond the objective unit examinations, which reflects his/her ability to analyze, synthesize, evaluate and apply his/her knowledge. The writing assignment materials are found immediately following each unit examination.Writing assignments are judged on the quality of the response in regard to the question. Word count is NOT one of the criteria that is used in assigning points to writing assignments. However, students who are successful in earning the maximum number of points tend to submit writing assignments that fall in the following ranges: 350 – 500 per question.
Citation StylesThe majority of your response should be your own original writing based on what you have learned from the textbook. However, students may also use outside materials if applicable. Be sure to provide a citation and a reference for any materials used, including the required textbook. The following points are designed to help you understand how to provide proper citations and references for your work:Sources are listed in two places.The first, a citation, is briefly listed within your answer. Thisincludes identifying information that directs the reader to your list of references at the end of your writing assignment.The second, a reference, is at the end of your work in the list of references section.All sources cited should follow APA style and provide enough identifying information so that the reader can access the original material.More detailed information about citations and references can be located on the Coast Connection student portal.
