Here is a check list of the most basic elements of APA Style. When your instructor assigns a project that requires you to write a paper using APA format you will be setting up your document with these elements:
Instructors frequently require students to use APA Style within presentations. APA Style does not provide specific guidelines for PowerPoint presentations and visuals. You will be adapting APA Style guidelines. Check with your instructor about the format.
