EnterTRAINment: Schoolhouse rocks meets APA

Similar to the style guides used by journalists, the American Psychological Association’s Publication Manual is used by I-O students, faculty, and practitioners. Users of this text-heavy book often feel overwhelmed. This is problematic because manuscripts with APA errors are 3 to 8 times more likely to be rejected when submitted for publication. Building upon principles used in the award winning series Schoolhouse Rock, we tested the effectiveness of a series of animated videos to teach students how to use APA’s Publication Manual. The multi-media session uses music, animation, infographics, and vignettes from frustrated writers
