CAP Draft Instructions
Students submit two drafts of their CAP paper during the term. The student’s clinical instructor reviews the drafts and provides feedback. Each draft earns a maximum of 5 points. Consult the “CAP Instructions and Rubric” document for guidance on content.
1st draft contains:
· Literature review of the topic/issue
The first draft includes proper APA-styled citations for the articles referenced. It does NOT need to include an APA-styled title page; however, this is a requirement for the final paper.
2nd draft contains:
· Literature review of the solution/interventions
The second draft includes proper APA-styled citations for the articles referenced.
· These drafts are an opportunity for the instructor to tell the student if they are on the right track for content, writing, and formatting.
· The drafts are not an opportunity to receive detailed corrections on content and APA style.
Students are encouraged to seek writing/APA assistance from the APA Publication Manual, ResU’s lib guides, the Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue, or through the TutorMe resource found on the landing page of Brightspace.
