APA Citation Certificate in Brightspace

A non-credit certificate is now available through Brightspace to provide the basics of formatting a paper, creating a reference list, and using in-text citations with videos and links to the APA (American Psychological Association) Style Guidelines.

Want to strengthen student use of APA citation style for research papers? The APA @ Brockport Certificate is a collaboration between Drake Memorial Library and the Academic Success Center Writing Tutoring. The goal is to prepare students to find the appropriate answers on how to use APA style. 

All students have access to the course through Brightspace. Participants must complete three online modules to earn the certificate. Each module ends with a summary quiz. Students who complete the modules receive a PDF certificate they can submit to their instructor(s) as evidence.

To assign this course to your students:

  1. add link below to your course/syllabus
  2. add an assignment where students can upload their PDF certificates.
