The outline shall be at least 1000 words. Read through the chapters. Review the chapters and look for the main points. Summarize the main sections. Write down the important points. The outline should contain multiple sub headings for each important point.
1. The paper will not be excessively quoted, but will be at least 65% in the student’s own words. Twice the percentage over 35% will be deducted for every percentage of the outline over 35% similar can be lost if a tremendous amount of the paper is over quoted. For example, an outline that shows 47% similar on Turnitin.com will have 24% deducted from the 40 points possible, 10 points. (47-35=12×2=24%x40=10)
