Target Student Population:
elementary, middle, high school, college and graduate students conducting research
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
None, other than basic technical skills such as keyboarding, operating a computer. Begins with basics and continues through advanced MLA and APA
This useful tool creates bibliographic entries in two formats: MLA and APA. It currently reflects the most recent stylesheet for each. It includes a 41-page pdf user guide.
It may not be appropriate for younger students; we were unable to access the MLA starter once an account was created; unclear how to do so. Website may be a bit
complicated for younger students to navigate; very dense information.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This is not a teaching tool per se, but it is a useful add-on to any course that requires writing. Extensive support helps researchers with weaker formatting/researching skills. It provides step-by-step methodology for creating citations/bibiographies.
The site does not teach proper format, it only creates the entries. The reviewers cannot verify use for younger student, i.e. grades 1-5 - beginners.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
It is relatively easy to get "up and running" quickly for both students and faculty.
Reviewers were unable to access the program for younger students so we cannot be sure of the ease of use for that section.
