Hi, John, one characterisitc of the high band is "The aim of the investigation is stated and its relevance is explained", i am not very sure about what are the specific and detailed meaning of "relevance" here. Could you help to explain it? Many thanks.

Dear Xiaolo

The goal here is that students should justify why the question is relevant to study within the population used in their study.

The works cited are going in as footnotes or is this based on which format we use - I have been using APA in which case the works cited is at the end. Is this acceptable under the new guidelines?

Dear Nikki - students should not use footnotes. Please have them use APA and put works cited at the end of the paper.
