Because of the importance of factor knowledge, you MUST acquire a minimum of one APA citation for each and every external factor discussed. Remember to include an APA in-text citation to correspond with your APA listing in the References section at the end of your paper. Your analysis MUST include a chart similar to the one attached to these instructions.
