As one of the requirements for some courses at Alexander College, students may have to officially complete a Citations Workshop. The workshop is designed for self-study, and the Exit Quiz will determine if you pass.
Even if it is not part of your course requirement, we still recommend checking out the Citations Workshop course, as learning how to properly cite sources for assignments, papers and general projects can help you avoid getting into trouble for plagiarism.
You can access the Citations Workshop course via the Student Support hub on Canvas.
After self-registering, work through the material in order by viewing the PowerPoints and attempting the practice quizzes.
Once you have worked through the material, the Exit Quizzes will be unlocked.
The Exit Quizzes are open book – this means you can use your style guide to help you!
Complete this before the deadline! To find out when the deadline is, check the date marked in the Exit Quiz.
Once you have passed Part C, a Pass Report Quiz will be unlocked. You have only a single attempt to obtain your pass report. To obtain your pass report, fill out the required information in the quiz and submit it. This submission is your pass report. Take a screenshot to give to your instructor(s). The WLC will be confirming everyone’s grades at the end of the term with your instructor. If you made an error in the pass report quiz, send an email to email@example.com.
Our newly revised citation style guides have been updated and re-organized to make them easier to use. Want to know what an ‘APA’, ‘CMS’, or ‘MLA’ style paper looks like? These sample papers were written by an Alexander College student (we changed the name to protect the author’s identity). It’s the same essay in each example, but the citation style has been changed.
If you need additional assistance in formatting your assignments in any of the different citation styles, try checking out our Software Skills Canvas course.
While the Software Skills course is primarily focused programs, you can also find videos, guides and examples on how to set up your word document in APA, MLA, or CMS citation styles.
Here, you can find the guides, examples, and video links to set up your assignment in one of the three citation styles.
