Citing Film Using APA Referencing System. The American Psychological Association (APA) Referencing System
The APA (American Psychological Association) style requires two elements: in-text citations throughout your assignment, and a reference list at the end.
Paraphrase of the source (in your own words)
Encouraging students to memorise information and then testing their memory has been a consistent criterion of pedagogy (Broudy, 1998).
Broudy (1998, p. 8) explains that memorisation does not result in an ability to solve problems.
Quotation (exact words from the source)
Broudy (1998, p. 9) argues that “on the common criteria for schooling, our sample citizen has failed because he cannot replicate the necessary skill or apply the relevant principles”.
