Grading Rubric – see attachment in Supporting Materials below
While I cannot personally vouch for the following, you may find them useful:
When Can I Study?: The iStudiez Pro app already allows students to schedule their lives and receive alerts when assignment due dates approach, but with the crowded schedules of today’s students, when can they study? Students can input their course and work schedules, family commitments and sleep needs, and this app will schedule optimum study times throughout the day.
Cite This!: EasyBib helps students manage their research notes, but what about when to cite? Most students know that they should cite direct quotes, but don’t realize that they also need to cite information they paraphrase or ideas they have learned elsewhere. This app will scan a paper and highlight passages that may require some form of citation in instances other than direct quotes.

Assignment #7a – Research Paper and 7b (associated DB).Please note that when cited in this course “Research Paper” and “Research Project” are synonymous.
Write a paper in MS-Word or an MS-Word compatible format of a minimum of fifteen pages in length exclusive of the title and reference pages. The paper must be written in APA style format (see attachment below). Please leverage the resources available in the “APUS Online Library.”
Using the material available in your course and on-line and/or from other sources, devise a plan for setting up a state-of-the-art airport security system. You must discuss the following points as a minimum:
- The security force – selection, organization, training.
- Airport lay-out – suggest a design which maximizes security management efficiency and passenger flow while minimizing discomfort and delay to air travelers. You may use diagrams to supplement your work.
- Describe the system for screening passengers step-by-step as a process describing each piece of equipment used and its function. You may diagram this system if you wish.
- Describe how you would integrate systems for maximum efficiency.
- Discuss security management of freight air carriers in brief.
Your paper should be oriented towards a primary commercial service airport in the United States. This is a best-case scenario so consider the budget funded. Discuss passenger screening in terms of concentric ring theory (defense-in-depth). In other words, passenger screening must consist of at least three overlapping layers. In terms of system integration, discuss the integration of passenger screening system design with other security components used at the airport, ie, closed circuit television systems (CCTV), barriers, access to the airside operations area, etc.
Your paper will be graded on the Rubric criteria which is explained in detail in Rubrics folder in “Lessons.”
