Please answer the following questions. Your answers can be a 2-3 sentences per question. DO NOT COPY QUESTIONS but DO NUMBER the answers.

  1. What is a persona? What do personas represent? Using proper APA citation format, cite the source for your information. DO NOT copy from the source — write in your own words and then cite where you learned that information
  2. How does a writer make a persona that is accurate, useful, and representative and that does not simply stereotype a population? cite the source
  3. What is the difference between audience and persona? cite the source
  4. Why is user behavior important for personas? cite the source
    Use the writing/APA handout to review proper APA format for citations and references. Also proofread carefully for FORMAL language using the writing tips in the handout. Remember NO first person POV, vague language, inappropriate pronouns (it, they, them etc).
