Q. How do I answer midterm questions in APA format?
Thank you for your question about what instructors usually mean when they ask for APA format on something that is not a formal APA research paper.
In general, when instructors say that they want your homework "in APA format" they mean that they want you to use the basic structure of crafting an APA paper. So they expect you to have these things:
- 1-inch margins all the way around
- Font size: 12 point
- Font: Times New Roman
- A title or cover page
- A References page (when appropriate) and in APA citation style
As you are not writing a paper, you would not need an Abstract.
You can visit Baker's APA Help for more information.
If you need further assistance with APA, contact your Campus Librarians. Thank you for using ASK US.
