They're all fine if you change "me" to "I" in sentence 4. (Do you know why?)

4 and 5 are the best opposites of 1. The others are OK, but I've never heard anyone use them. You could also say, "He couldn't keep the secret" or "He didn't keep her secret."

1 and 2 make the most sense. 3 sounds as if "I" would be taking it somewhere else.

What did you find? Who is the publisher and what's the copyright date?
April 3, 2015

English
But this website has no specified page numbers. Only PDF files seem to do that. So you skip it and go to the publisher's information ... publisher and date (in this case a copyright date). Look at the very bottom of the webpage.
April 3, 2015

English
Right ... and that will go in italics. What's next on the list ... BEFORE the publisher's information?
April 3, 2015

English
No, that will be the publisher. What's the other title that appears on this page?
April 3, 2015

English
Right. Now, the title of the Website or project in italics?
April 3, 2015

English
No ... only a person or people would be authors or editors.So you do the same as with the other one. Skip that part. What is the title of the article that you'll put in quotation marks?

For in-text citations (let's say you quote a sentence or two from page 2), it'd look like this: ... blah blah blah "yada yada yada" ("Exploring the Pros..." 2).

Check for spacing. Check the spelling of "higher" No period after "Apr" Now re-post the whole thing here and I'll double-check it for you.

There are other places where spaces are needed ... do you see where?

Right. So after the publisher and date (and a period), you'll put this: Six pages.

Next is the number of pages. This is a PDF file, so there are pages indicated when you scroll up and down the webpage. How many total pages do you find?

January 2013.
April 3, 2015

So after the wording in italics, you should have this: University of Washington, ______. (The date goes in the blank. What date will you use?)
April 3, 2015

English
Yes ... including the publishing date. Do you see it?
April 3, 2015

English
Put a period after that, even though it doesn't have its own punctuation at the end. Then what's next?
April 3, 2015

English
Yes. The next part is a little tricky. The third element is the title of the website, project or book -- and it'll be put in italics in your citation. Use this: Leading change in public higher education: A provost report series on trends and issues facing higher education
April 3, 2015

English
Yes. That will be the first part of your citation. And what punctuation do you use around that title?
April 3, 2015

English
University of Washington is what you'll use for the name of the publisher. There is no author or editor named, so you skip that element. The next element is the title of the article. What's that title?
April 3, 2015

This is the webpage you're trying to cite, correct? http://www.washington.edu/provost/files/2012/11/edtrends_Pros-Cons-ClassFormats.pdf
