As one of the requirements for some courses at Alexander College, students may have to officially complete a Citations Skill. 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 Skills 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 Skills 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.
The course is set up to unlock each part once you have passed. If it has not been unlocked – you have not passed!
You must work through the material in order and score at least 8 out of 10 in all three practice quizzes to unlock pass the Exit Quiz.
All our quizzes are open book – this means you can use your style guide to help you!
Once you have worked through the material, the Exit Quizzes will be unlocked.
If you have missed the deadline, your test will be considered a fail. You will have to speak with your instructor to see if they can make alternate arrangements with you.
The WLC cannot make exceptions for you and their deadline is firm.
Please note that you DO NOT need a pass report. Once you pass the exit quiz, your result will be uploaded to myAC and will be visible to your instructor.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the Citations Skills process.
Our citation style guides have been updated and re-organized. Please ensure to download the latest version and follow it when you are writing your paper. If you are not sure which style you are required to use, confirm with your instructor first.
Watching the tutorial videos in the Citations Skills course on Canvas can help you understand how to follow the Style Guides better.
If you need further help, please contact the WLC or book an appointment with a Humanity Specialist.
If you need additional assistance with formatting your assignments in any of the citation styles, try checking out our Software Skills Canvas course.
Here, you can find the guides, examples, and video links to set up your assignment in APA, MLA, or CMS style.
