we have learned about and used APA style. In your initial post, include the following:
1. Provide an explanation of why APA style is used by academic institutions.
2. Provide two examples of your understanding of APA style at the start of the course to what you now know. As an example, you had no idea what APA stood for, but now you know it’s the American Psychological Association.
3. Explain what you found most challenging about APA style, and how you overcame that challenge.
4. Describe resources available to the student that can be of assistance with APA style.
Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
This topic is valued at 40 points. Please review post and response expectations. Please review the rubric to ensure that your response meets criteria (Read Me First Section of the Course).
Use the readings and your research to examine a formal simulation model in policy-making. Consider the following as you review the literature:
How does the model fit into the need of a selected organization?
How can validity and formality be applied to the model?
Your submission should be approximately 500 words and demonstrate proper APA formatting and style. You do not need to include a cover page or abstract, but be sure to include your name, assignment title, and page number in the running header of each page. Your assignment should include a minimum of four references from your unit readings and your research; the sources should be appropriately cited throughout your paper and in your reference list. Use meaningful section headings to clarify the organization and readability of your paper.
