Merced College Library APA 7 Tutorial

This interactive tutorial was created by Faculty Librarian Lindsay Davis and will guide you through:

  • formatting a paper
  • creating in-text citations
  • pulling information from sources to create citations for a References page in APA 7th edition

The tutorial can be used as an assignment because there are quiz questions. Students can retake it as often as they wish, and after completing the tutorial, they can download a PDF certificate of completion with their name and score as a percentage.
