Review the Paper

Read the paper to ensure all required elements are present.

The following are specific requirements that you will follow.  Use the checklist to mark off that you have followed each specific requirement.

Checklist Specific Project Requirements
  Proofread your paper. Ensure your topic heading match those above.
  Read and use the grading rubric while completing the report to ensure all requirements are met that will lead to the highest possible grade.
  Third-person writing is required.  Third-person means that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first-person writing), nor is there use of “you or your” (the second person writing).  If uncertain how to write in the third person, view this link:
  Contractions are not used in business writing, so do not use them.
  Paraphrase and do not use direct quotations.  Paraphrase means you do not use more than four consecutive words from a source document.  Removing quotation marks and citing is inappropriate.  Instead, put a passage from a source document into your own words and attribute the passage to the source document.  There should be no passages with quotation marks.  Using more than four consecutive words from a source document would require direct quotation marks.  Changing words from a passage does not exclude the passage from having quotation marks.
  You are expected to use the provided weekly course materials to develop the analysis and support the reasoning.   There should be a robust use of the course material.  The material used from a source document must be cited and referenced.  A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa.  Changing words from a passage does not exclude the passage from having quotation marks.
  Use in-text citations and provide a reference list that contains the reference associated with each in-text citation.
  You may not use books in completing this problem set unless part of the course material.  Also, do not use a dictionary, Wikipedia or Investopedia, or similar sources.
  Provide the page or paragraph number in every in-text citation. Since the eBook does not have page numbers,  you are to include the chapter title, section heading, and paragraph number.

For citations using a video, you must provide the minutes and second of the cited material.

Submit the paper in the Assignment Folder (The assignment submitted to the Assignment Folder will be considered the student’s final product and therefore ready for grading by the instructor.  It is incumbent upon the student to verify the assignment is the correct submission.
