In addition to the reading and internet assignments students will submit a final paper. The final paper will present the studentís practice questions formed during the course (including at least one COPES question for each of the five types), the search plan and search history forms for each of the five questions, the results of the evidence search and evaluation process, and resulting guidelines in the form of a beginning personal practice model for a specialized area of practice of his or her choice. This paper should be no more than 10 pages, double spaced and written according to APA format. The course grade will be based on work conducted during the class sessions (50%) and the final paper (50%).
