Evidence and APAThe third core writing skill of the Capella Writing Standards is related to evidence.

Capella Writing StandardIntegrate appropriate evidence

Integrate into text appropriate use of scholarly sources, evidence, and citation style.

Developing your skills as a scholar requires you to consider your research methods, source credibility, and synthesis of complex information. Ensuring you are able to integrate appropriate evidence in your texts will better situate you for success and support your development as a scholar.

APA Style and FormatCapella requires that learners use APA Style to provide attribution to the authors of external sources. APA promotes the abilities to paraphrase and summarize, create concise texts, and develop in-text citations and reference pages that will connect your readers to important sources of evidence.

APA has developed a virtual representation of the APA manual on Academic Writer, a tool that you can use to support you in following APA format. All Capella learners are provided with a subscription to Academic Writer.
