SYMLOG Analysis of Group Interactions
Use this page to quickly rate the
behavior of group members and automatically generate field
diagrams of group interaction. If you rate each
indivdual in your group, create a standard field diagram
for each, then overlay the diagrams, you can create a
single field diagram for your group.
Also available is the SYMLOG Group Simulator, if you choose to use it. Go to: http://www.iu.edu/ In search bar, (upper right corner of page) type: group simulator SYMLOG and click the first return in the lis. You will go to the simulator with links below for user manual, and other resources and links.The simulator allows for "experimentation" with dimensions of groups.

If you are new to APA, I suggest this overview: http://www.csus.edu/indiv/s/stonerm/American_Psychological_Association_%28APA%29_Documentation_M.pdf
Here are two on-line APA style pages to get you started:
University of Wisconsin link: http://www.wisc.edu/writing/Handbook/DocAPA.html
Purdue University link: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01
For a flash overview of APA tutorial go to: http://flash1r.apa.org/apastyle/basics/index.htm
I especially recommend slides 13-26.
