Generally, tables are used to display numbers, and figures are used to display graphics. Capitalize the word “Table” (not bold or italicized) above the “table” beginning at the left-hand margin followed by the number (1, 2…) as referred to in the text. Double space and begin the title directly below the table number. Capitalize every major word in the title that should be brief, clear, and descriptive. If more than one line, the title can be single space. Horizontal lines are permitted but not vertical lines. Horizontal lines should begin at the left margin and extend slightly beyond the most right-hand column of data. A line goes one double space below the last line of data. Each column and each row will have a heading. Table centered in page. The first word of the heading is capitalize and may include standard abbreviations and symbols (%. M SD, df, F). Table notes go below table. Note is capitalized followed by a period. See the APA Manual and/or the following website for more information: http://web.psych.washington.edu/writingcenter/writingguides/pdf/tables.pdf Common errors are including tables that are longer than ¼ a page into the chapters; move all long tables and figures to an Appendix and mention this in the narrative. Properly label all figures and tables following APA standards. Figures follow APA and avoid vertical lines as much as possible (see APA) and are long figures and tables put into the Appendix? Figure titles use only capitalization of the first word and proper nouns.
