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?

You don't need to put the entire title in the in-text citations. Those in-text things are to be as brief as possible ... just enough to let your reader know which item in your Works Cited you quoted from. All the details go into the Works Cited. In in-text citations, just ...

English
Where did "The cons" come from?
April 3, 2015

English
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).
April 3, 2015

English
"Exploring the Pros and Cons of Online, Hybrid, and Face-to-face Class formats." Learning change in public higher education: A provost report series on trends and issues facing higher education. University of Washington (Jan 2013). 6. Web. 1 Apr 2015
April 3, 2015

English
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.
April 3, 2015

English
There are other places where spaces are needed ... do you see where?
April 3, 2015

English
Ahhh, good! Just put a space after the closing quotation marks and before "Jan" And make sure you have Learning ... education in italics. Double-check everything to make sure you have no spelling errors.

The last three elements should be easy. Medium of publication. Date you accessed the material. URL What's the medium of publication? In other words, where did you find this? In a book or online or in a magazine or what? The date you accessed the website. The URL -- if you ...
April 3, 2015

English
Right. So after the publisher and date (and a period), you'll put this: Six pages.
April 3, 2015

English
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?
April 3, 2015

English
January 2013.
April 3, 2015

English
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

English
This is the webpage you're trying to cite, correct? http://www.washington.edu/provost/files/2012/11/edtrends_Pros-Cons-ClassFormats.pdf
April 3, 2015

English
If you're trying to use a citation generating website for that, you're right ... it doesn't work. So ... what is the author's or editor's name?
