The total assignment length (not counting title and reference pages) should be at least four pages. APA-style formatting applies. The purpose of this assignment is to gauge your understanding of the content, so focus on writing original content rather than simply regurgitating the textbook or other sources, whether by paraphrasing or using direct quotes.
Paraphrasing is acceptable, but try to keep paraphrasing to a minimum. A good rule of thumb is to use 80% of your own work and paraphrase 20% or less of the work of others. Consider running your assignment through the SafeAssign Originality Checker located in the student portal. Please contact your professor if you have questions regarding your originality report.
