PAPER AND POSTER GUIDELINES
From your syllabus:
Each of you will be assigned to a group. Your group will prepare, present and submit a research paper based on a topic approved by your instructor. Late papers WILL NOT be accepted. Your group will be expected to present your research at a professional poster presentation. At least one member of your group must be in attendance at the presentation. Based on feedback during the poster session as well as my feedback on your paper submission, your group will have the opportunity to revise and resubmit your paper for a higher grade. Your research paper grade will be comprised of a group grade assigned by me for both the presentation and written submission as well as input based on peer evaluations from each of your group members. The consensus peer evaluations could potentially raise or lower your grade by one letter grade.
The paper must be NO longer than 15 pages and can take one of two forms:
The paper’s citations should be done in the APA style, guideline posted on CitLearn.
Any questions about the topic, structure, or format of the paper, please let me know.
The poster should be done in a 36 x 48 format. Poster guidelines and templates are posted on CitLearn. Please DO NOT use a trifold.
