Did i used the correct form for in text citation?

In Defense of Testing by Diane Ravitch states that, "The tests widely used today often rely too much on multiple-choice questions, which encourage guessing rather than thinking."(798).

Greetings!

Yes, you did a very good job with the MLA! There is only one tiny error I see, and that is that you don't include the period from the quotation inside the quotation itself; the period at the end of the sentence, after the page number, is sufficient. Also, leave a space between the quotation mark and the parenthesis; so, it would look like this:

In Defense of Testing by Diane Ravitch states that, "The tests widely used today often rely too much on multiple-choice questions, which encourage guessing rather than thinking" (798).

Good work!

Thanks,

I need help with a MLA citation (URL sources)

I know there are sites that help you with the citation, but there are not accurate all the time.

The two sources that I need to cite are from the following websites:

First : wtop.com/?nid=681&sid=2808367

Second : smh.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/busted-the-politics-of-cleavage-and-a-glance-20120211-1sy7e.html

I would really appreciate some help.

Visit The Owl at Purdue
Google "MLA owl purdue" and you'll find it.
Each year they update the site to include the correct changes to MLA format. Follow this to a tee, and you'll be fine.
