      The American Psychological Association (APA) style is the accepted standard for Curry School of Education graduate programs. A workbook that covers APA style is a suggested text and one class will be devoted to APA style. The APA Publication Manual (5th ed.) is available for purchase through the APA web site and at bookstores.

      For learners not familiar with APA style, links to the various resources are available through the University of Virginia Education Library link below. There are links to resources you can print and keep with you as a quick and easy reference. Thanks to Kay Buchanan from the Education Library for suggesting this resource for us. The UVA and the Ohio State Guides can be printed and can be valuable additions to your research folder. The Purdue guide is an outstanding Internet guide and should be book marked and open while doing papers in your Curry graduate program.
