Product Quicklook: A 5-7 slide Prezi presentation that demonstrates an understanding of the academic integrity guidelines at NCU, how to correctly paraphrase and cite sources in APA formatting, and how to integrate this knowledge into the student’s current and future career goals.
Skills Builder 1: Understanding Academic Integrity
You are expected to read and understand the Northcentral Academic Integrity Policy requirements, and follow them carefully throughout your course of study at Northcentral. Violations of these standards, whether intentional or unintentional, are reported by course instructors to the Dean’s Office, and a series of consequences follow, ranging from a warning and the opportunity to resubmit the paper (first violation only), grade penalties for the assignment, course failures, and dismissal from the University. To become familiar with these standards, complete the following:
a. Read the Northcentral Academic Integrity Policy.
b. Review the Northcentral Academic Integrity Tutorial.
The Academic Integrity tutorial explains the NCU Academic Integrity policy in greater depth and will direct you to resources that will help you learn the necessary skills to maintain integrity in academic writing.
c. Complete the Northcentral Academic Integrity Questionnaire.
Test your knowledge of the Northcentral Academic Integrity Policy by completing this questionnaire.

Skills Builder 2: Understanding the Basics of APA Formatting
It is also necessary to learn about correct APA Form and Style. The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the gold standard for professional and academic writing and is the style used at Northcentral. We strongly urge you to complete the Basics of APA Style Tutorial. Mastering APA form and style takes time, and there is no time like the present to begin! For beginners, you will review some of the basic APA writing rules, especially those that apply to citation and references.

Assignment: Address Academic Integrity (6 points)
Having gained a lot of knowledge about academic integrity and APA formatting, now it is time to put this knowledge to use. In this step, you will create a Prezi presentation of 5-7 slides, describing what you have learned about plagiarism, academic integrity here at NCU and APA formatting. You are expected to cover the following areas (feel free to use the seven bolded items below as titles for your slides):
- Why academic integrity is important at NCU
- The consequences of an academic integrity violation
- Examples (2) of proper versus improper paraphrasing (correctly citing where you got this information).
- Resources available to students to help improve their writing skills
- Resources available to students to learn more about proper APA formatting
- How can you use the principles learned in this week to further your chosen career (i.e., why does academic integrity matter in your field).
- A full references slide, in APA formatting, showing the materials you used to create the presentation.
Your presentations can be both informative and creative.
You are encouraged to learn as much as you can about how to create effective Prezi presentations because you will use them again in future courses.
You have two options to deliver the presentation you developed. Option 1: Schedule a face-to-face meeting with your instructor through WebEx or other videoconferencing application. Option 2: Add audio to your Prezi presentation and submit the presentation, with the audio embedded in the presentation, to your instructor in the course room by pasting the Prezi link into a Word document.
PLEASE NOTE: Neither of these two options requires a paid Prezi account. You can do everything you need to do using the free, student version of Prezi. While you are looking at your Prezi in edit mode, click on the ‘Share’ button to see various options for sharing. Provide your professor with the appropriate link, depending on whether you plan to ‘present remotely’ or submit your presentation with recorded audio.
In addition to creating a Prezi presentation, create an outline of your presentation by combining all the ideas you included in your Prezi presentation in one Word document. In this document you can also include any notes that you were not able to include in the Prezi presentation.
Length: 5-7 slides or transitions (excluding the title slide/transition and references slide/transition); 2-3 pages outline of the presentation.
Good presentations do not contain too much information in the slides/transitions. They contain enough information to “whet the appetite” of the participants, and then the presenter uses his/her narration to complete the presentation. So, to finish the presentation, add narration with the presentations or make notes or provide a transcript of the information you would say along with the slides/transitions.
Your presentation should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights (yours) relating directly to this topic. Your presentation should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards (slides should have citations where information is used from an outside source and there should be a references slide at the end with full APA citations of all material used in the presentation).
