I’ll have the reading in the drop box……..What approaches can an analyst use to reduce cognitive and perceptual biases?
- Provide evidence from the weekly readings to support your arguments via APA parenthetical citations.
- Other sources (if used at all) must be subordinate to your understanding of the readings presented in the class. Instructions: When replying to the main forum answer make sure to include your name in the “topic title” of your initial forum answer/response. Fully utilize the required readings from the lesson this week to support your response to the main forum question. Your initial post should be at least 300 words and focus on directly answering the assigned question in a scholarly manner – like a very short paper with in-text citations from the lesson/required readings. Each sentence quoting or paraphrasing any ideas or information from any source must be cited properly including the author and year of publication. If directly quoting, you must also include the page or paragraph number that you are quoting from like (Hoffman, 2006, p.7) or for articles and sources without pages (Renner, 2016, para.15). If you are directly quoting and there is no page number to cite, then you manually count the paragraphs and cite that number. You also need to have a reference list at the end of your post listing your sources. For more on APA citations and reference lists see pages 19-22 of the APUS Style Guide for APA. You must first provide your own initial forum answer before replying to any classmates or the professor. The main forum answer is like a short paper answering the topic of the week with a scholarly response.
