The Mastering APA Style Student Workbook is designed to help all writers, including students, learn and apply APA Style to become better at writing with clarity, precision, and inclusivity. The workbook is effective for both classroom use and independent study. It can be used by high school and college students and others new to APA Style to familiarize themselves with the style guidelines or by graduate students, professionals, and copyeditors who want practice applying the guidelines.
Instructors can adopt the workbook for their course or workshop and integrate it with their learning management system. The workbook’s Learning Dashboard presents data about specific aspects of learning and engagement and provides easy access to rich data analytics on student and course performance. Instructors can use this information to determine whether students have mastered specific learning objectives and provide them with targeted feedback and support. Learn more about adopting the workbook and using it in your course or workshop at the webinar for instructors on September 16, 2021.
Students and other learners can purchase the version of the workbook that fits their needs. Bundled versions (workbook + Concise Guide to APA Style and workbook + Publication Manual) provide full access via VitalSource to the workbook and the APA Style manual ebook and include hints for each question that link directly to relevant sections in the corresponding ebook. If you already own an APA Style manual, get the workbook only to use with your existing manual and have access to hints that list the relevant sections in both APA Style manuals. In all cases, we encourage learners to use the workbook alongside their APA Style manual and to “remember that the questions in this workbook challenge you to apply APA Style, not to prove that you have memorized the guidelines” (American Psychological Association, 2021, “About the Workbook”).
