Through writing this positional paper, you will be required to demonstrate knowledge of your approved topic, how to conduct research using the GMC Library, how to properly use APA style (formatting, citation, and referencing of sources), and how to apply critical thinking skills within the analysis and presentation of your research results.
Your positional paper is to be a minimum of 5 complete pages in length. Your positional paper should include an APA title page, an abstract, and an APA reference page. The APA title page, abstract, and APA reference page DO NOT count towards the minimum page requirement! Your body of work needs to be a minimum of 5 complete pages in length. This paper is to be written in long essay format (introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion).
You will be responsible for using a minimum of 5 sources from which you are required to use a minimum of 3 scholarly/peer-reviewed sources. Note that textbooks are not considered a scholarly/peer-reviewed source. The following list of websites are unacceptable for use in the positional paper (WordPress, Chegg, Chron, CourseHero, Wikipedia, About, eHow, JustAnswer, Quizlet, Scribd, Stackoverview, Wikihow, or WiseGeek). Blogs are also unacceptable for use in the positional paper. All sources used must be current (within the past 10 years), credible, AND authoritative.
Be as thorough as possible when writing your positional paper, and remember, this is an academic assignment, so no “text-talk,” no conversational tone, and ABOVE ALL OTHER THINGS…don’t plagiarize!! Lastly, spell-check and proofread your work! Failure to follow these steps will negatively impact your grade.
For this course, you will submit versions of your paper through Turnitin. An Originality Report will become available within a few minutes after your first submission. Inside the Originality Report will be a Similarity Index. The Similarity Index will show a percentage of the material in your paper if it matches other sources found by Turnitin. You will be expected to have a Similarity Index of less than 20%. If your Similarity Index is greater than 20% you will need to review your Originality Report to be sure that you have paraphrased your work appropriately and cited and referenced your work correctly. If you have done so and your Similarity Index is greater than 20%, you may disregard the Similarity Index percentage.
The Originality Report will help you to avoid plagiarism, as well as improve the quality and content of your writing. It is strongly suggested that you keep direct quotations to a minimum, and never copy and paste text without proper citations. You have until the activity due date to resubmit your work to Turnitin, however, there will commonly be a 24-hour delay before the Originality Report becomes available. It is your responsibility to submit your activity on time, with a Similarity Index of less than 20%. As noted above, if you have paraphrased your work appropriately, cited and referenced your work correctly, and your Similarity Index is greater than 20%, disregard the Similarity Index percentage.
You will be required to upload the assignments as Microsoft Word (.docx) documents using the required naming protocol found in each assignment. Grading rubrics for each assignment may be found in the Grading Rubrics section below the Course Syllabus on the homepage of the course.
