These are what my instructor require students to include with their written work as each instructor is different. APA format is in Word and just follow the template.
While APA does provide formatting and structural guidance please remember it does not cover all papers and is relegated to research papers mostly. Therefore I will ask for different items within your written assignments.The following aresome common issuesthatdetract from overall scores: (Cover page) No running head No page number Incorrect instructor heading (Instructor Todd Curtis Todd Curtis Todd PhD (Dr. Curtis Todd will suffice) No date Font in running head does not match rest of font (Body of paper) No thesis statement Excessive short sentences Grammatical errors Spelling Failure to use headings for new topics within the paper Sentence structure (awkward missing words) Punctuation Incorrect or improper citations Conclusion heading and paragraph In conclusion’ statement which will be severely penalized as this is not scholarly. No restated thesis statement in past tenseMORE GUIDANCE:
Please be sure to include a thesis statement within the introduction of your written work.The thesis statement should be in bold font and be the last few sentences of the introduction. For example the thesis statement could say This paper will discuss…. or This paper will explore etc…. Please be sure to clearly state what you will discuss or address in your assignment to give your reader clarity. It should be a few sentences at mostly rather than a paragraph. Be succinct as well.
You must use an Introduction heading at the beginning of you paper and usetransitionalsentences to introduce the next new topic.
In the conclusion of the paper please be sure to restate your thesis statement in past tense however; you do not need to use bold font. In the conclusion please do not introduce any new information. You should summarize and provide your final thoughts.Please please do not begin your conclusion within conclusion’ as this is not a scholarly response and substantial loss of points will occur. Please do not use bullet points graphics pictures or numerals when discussing information as this can be viewed as just filling the page requirement. The written assignments are too small to incorporate the above and if you a penalty will ensue.
ALL WRITTEN ASSIGNMENTS ARE TO BE SUBMITTED AS A WORD DOC ONLY. A PDF FILE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
Please be sure to write all papers in third person for a better academic flow. According to APA (slide 13 in pwr pnt presentation). Use 3rdperson point of view(unless opinion paper): Avoid pronouns such asI we my our(1stperson) andyou yours your us we(2nd person). Deal with facts thus providing citations within paper and reference page. Focus on subject; notfeelings about the subject. The use of 3rdperson retains a formal tone: Academic writing is more formal than casual conversation. Please please please follow all assignment directions along with weekly announcement information as this can also impact your grade. I want each of you to finish strong and if you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
HR Performance Issues and Motivation
The relationship between the organization and its members can be greatly influenced by what motivates individuals to work. The style of leadership job design resources on the job and environment can all have a significant effect on the satisfaction of employees and their performance. Performance is also influenced by individual motivations (e.g. social recognition financial reward personal growth and development and/or intrinsic satisfaction) and can equally impact the organization. There are many theories that attempt to explain the nature of motivation. Write a four- to five-page paper (excluding the title and reference pages) evaluating the relationship between motivation job satisfaction and work performance. Be sure to address the following:
1. Describe a performance issue which resulted from a motivational problem (what why who).
2. Use a content theory of motivation (e.g. Maslow Alderfer Herzberg or McClelland) or a process theory (i.e. Adams Locke or Heider and Kelley) to explain how the issue creates a performance problem for the organization.
3. Use the theory of motivation you selected to describe an intervention/action to change the motivation/behavior and correct the performance problem.
Your paper must use a minimum of three scholarly sources in addition to the textbook. Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center..
