The APA @ Brockport Certificate is a collaboration between Drake Memorial Library and the Academic Success Center Writing Tutoring. The goal of this course is to prepare you to find the appropriate answers on how to use APA style. While this course in itself will not make you an APA expert, it will teach you the basics of formatting your paper, creating a references list, and using in-text citations. The module contains videos and links to the APA Style Guidelines.
In order to complete the certificate, you must complete three modules. Each module ends with a summary quiz. You must pass each quiz with 100% for the next module to become available.
Upon successful completion of all three modules you will be able to download a PDF certificate. You can then submit this PDF to your professor. The library cannot share the names of those who have completed the certificate with professors.
