Do you teach students about APA Style guidelines? APA has two instructional aids that can help you get started.
Mastering APA Style: Instructor’s Resource Guide (6th ed.) “contains eight multiple-choice assessment surveys, correction keys, and answer sheets, along with informative instructions on how to incorporate this material into a curriculum.” This guide is “designed to help improve students’ understanding and use of APA Style before they begin writing term papers and research reports, allowing instructors in academic settings to concentrate more on course material and less on correcting style errors in students’ papers.”
Mastering APA Style: Student’s Workbook and Training Guide (6th ed.) “is a self-pacing, self-teaching workbook that can be used to learn APA Style quickly and effectively.” This training guide includes “instructional exercises and practice tests on various aspects and features of the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, including electronic references and citations, grammar, headings, italics and capitalization, numbers style, and table formatting.”
You can order these and other APA Style products for your library or classroom.
