How to format your assignment in APA style

Tables & Figures

Tables show data or statistics, which support the information in your assignment, in columns and rows.

Figures are visual presentations of information that are not in table format, including pictures, graphs, photos, and diagrams.

 You need to consider the following when using tables or figures in your assignments and papers: necessity; relation to text; citation; integrity and independence; organization, consistency and coherence. These topics are covered individually in the tabs on the left side of this screen.
