If you are quoting a section of text that you wrote for a previous assignment, you must consider that information to have already been published because you made it public, though not in a recoverable form that is widely available. Accordingly, please use the format for personal communication to cite yourself. If your text was previously published in a recoverable form (e.g., a blog post or journal article), please cite the source according to the APA Style rules for that resource type. Before using previously-submitted work, please check with your instructor to ensure that she or he will accept the work as part of your new project.
