Project Part 5 – Final Report

You will submit a final report, written in Word (or similar word processing software), APA format based on your findings and submissions from parts 1-4. It is highly suggested you not submit this paper without first reviewing all the feedback from your instructor on submissions from weeks 1-6. Be sure to ask any questions you may have on your feedback.

This final submission should be three paragraphs and summarize your entire project. It will be submitted through SafeAssign, Liberty’s Plagiarism software on BlackBoard. The project must be submitted in paragraph form and not just a list of the calculations from your project.
