All writing must follow current APA format, including in-text citations and references. Complete sentences are expected and the rules of grammar, mechanics, and usage are expected to be followed. For your reply, the same. The final word count will be calculated after superfluous text (padding) is removed, including in-text citations and references. The maximum grade on discussions having fewer words than the minimum word count is set at the percentage of the minimum. For example, an edited discussion with 150 words of meaningful text would have a maximum grade of 150/300 = 50%, even if it were otherwise perfect.
