(The case study is to be uploaded as indicated online and is expected to be typed, in English, in a 12-point font, double-spaced, at least 700 words long and free of errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar. Subjects and verbs are expected to agree; pronouns are expected to agree with their antecedents. Do not include an abstract. Do not include footnotes or endnotes. Please pay attention to the grading rubric.)

Each student’s submission is expected to be original work that the student personally researched and wrote for this class. Most of the submission is expected to be the student’s own writing and analysis in the student’s words, not just including a lot of quoted material. No more than 20% of an assignment should match something already in the Turnitin database. Paraphrase or cut quotations. If the originality report indicates that more than 20% of an assignment matches something already in the database, students may revise and resubmit the assignment until the deadline. The instructor sees only the last submission. Turnitin typically gives an originality report immediately for a first submission, but may take 24 hours or longer to generate originality reports for subsequent submissions.

Students are expected to present valid, logical arguments with supporting evidence. If references are cited, please note that Bibles and dictionary definitions do not constitute references. Students may use legitimate, scholarly websites in conducting research, but anonymous websites are not acceptable as references. Any references are expected to be formatted in the style of the American Psychological Association (APA). If citing websites, students are expected to include the URL.
