Explore PT sources


Good morning,
The Explore PT says students must use 2 sources dated after the previous academic year. Does that mean anything after the Spring of 2018, or would slightly older sources be ok if they were at least published in 2018? Thanks.


Hi @almanm,

Short answer - the “previous academic year” ends after April of the previous calendar year. That means a source is considered recent enough if it’s dated May 2018 or later.
