Graduate School Success Plan
Learning Goal: I’m working on a computer science test / quiz prep and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
This assignment is designed for you to reflect on how you will continue to make process toward your Master of Science degree by creating a plan for success. You will write a short paper (3-5 pages), covering your purpose, potential obstacles and challenges, and strategies for success.
Your paper should be 3- 5 pages (excluding title and reference pages), and will consist of these elements:
- Title page (APA format); include a running head
- Reason for pursuing a master’s degree in IT management (create a level one heading)
- Anticipated obstacles and challenges (create a level one heading)
- Strategies for success (create a level one heading)
- Reference list
Practice supporting your ideas: cite at least three valid and reliable sources that support your reasons for pursuing a master’s degree, and your strategies for success. (Each of these sections should have at least one cited source.)
Practice APA format: make sure your title page, running head, internal headings, in-text citations, and reference list are all in “perfect” APA format.
Practice APA style: write in clear, concise, inclusive prose; avoid jargon, abbreviations, contractions; use a formal “voice.” EXCEPTION: you may use first-person pronouns in this paper, since it focuses on your experiences and intentions.
Practice professional writing: proofread carefully for grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation.
