Your PowerPoint presentation must be at least 10 to 15 slides (not including title and reference slides) with a required presenter’s Voice notation for each slide with additions to detailed speaker notes. You may want to look at How to Make a PowerPoint Presentation (Links to an external site.) to get started. Pay attention to APA Style (Links to an external site.) and formatting in this Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)’s guide. (Links to an external site.)APA guidelines are required in presentations and any scholarly work you create.
- Must include a separate title slide with the following:
- Title of Final Project
- Student’s name
- Course name and number
- Instructor’s name
- Date submitted
- Must utilize academic voice. See the Academic Voice (Links to an external site.) resource for additional guidance.
- Must include an introduction and conclusion paragraph. Your introduction paragraph needs to end with a clear statement that indicates the purpose of your presentation.
- For assistance on writing Introductions & Conclusions (Links to an external site.) refer to the Ashford Writing Center resources.
- Must use at least five scholarly, peer-reviewed, or credible sources (one of those may be the course text).
- The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. The Ashford University Library is a great place to find resources. Watch the Quick n’ Dirty (Links to an external site.) tutorial for research tips. If you have questions about whether a specific source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for a particular assignment.
- Must document any information used from sources in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center’s Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.)
- Must include a separate references slide that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. See the Formatting Your References List (Links to an external site.) resource in the Ashford Writing Center for specifications.
- Review the Writing Center’s Presentation Tips (Links to an external site.) to maximize your results.
- Must use speakers notes as follows:
- Speaker notes are the typed notes that appear below the slide that complement the presentation slides. Whereas the slides will have short bulleted items, the speaker notes will be more detailed. They are essentially what the presenter would say during the presentation to explain each of the bulleted points on the slide. Therefore, it is important that the speaker notes are concise and detailed when explaining the bullet points.
- It is recommended that PowerPoint Slides contain no more than five bullet points and should not contain more than seven to 10 words each. Do not type paragraphs or long sentences on the slide. The information that explains each bullet point is conveyed via speaker notes or by recording your voice to each slide.
