APA Style Quiz
Why you need to cite sources:
- Citing sources is the only way to use other people’s work without plagiarizing (i.e. if you are using any resource [journal article, book, website, report, interview, etc.], you NEED to give credit to the original source).
- The readers of your work need citations to learn more about your ideas and where they came from.
- Citing sources shows the amount of research you’ve done.
- Citing sources strengthens your work by lending outside support to your ideas.
In-text citations give credit to sources in the body of your paper. Use in-text citations when paraphrasing, directly quoting, or using ideas from sources.
- APA citation style uses the author-date method for in-text citations: Author(s)’ last name and the year of publication for the source should appear in the text.
- Names may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the date should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence.
- Include page numbers if you are directly quoting the material.
Citations in the Reference List must correspond to in-text citations; The word or
phrase you use in your in-text citations must be the first thing that appears on the
left-hand margin of the corresponding entry in the Reference List.

Capitalization and Punctuation
