  • An Authoritative Suite of Expert Instructional Resources
    For anyone providing instruction about APA Style to students who may have little or no prior exposure to APA Style, the research process, or the rigors of academic writing, APA Style CENTRAL is a comprehensive, reliable, and authoritative suite of learning and instructional resources.
  • Integration With Learning Management Systems
    APA Style CENTRAL can be integrated with an institution's learning management system, enabling educators to assign expertly created learning objects — including quick guides, tutorials, self-quizzes, tests, and sample materials — and to incorporate these directly into the classroom setting through an institution's Learning Management System (LMS).
  • Assessment & Collaborative Feedback
    Educators can embed learning objects into their course website or LMS, assign and administer tests, and use the collaborative environment to answer questions or provide guidance in real-time as students write their papers.
  • Spend Less Time Correcting Errors and More on Content Assessment
    Educators who assign writing projects that require formatting in APA Style will have confidence that students who use the available tools and compose their papers within APA Style CENTRAL will conform to APA Style rules and that their references and citations will be correctly formatted.
