Cover pages (also known as title pages) in APA look like this:

They include the following elements:

  1. Correct formatting (font: Times New Roman, size: 12, spacing: double, margins: 1 inch)
  2. Running head
  3. Page number
  4. Title
  5. Author name (you are the author, so your name)
  6. School you are affiliated with (Rasmussen College)
  7. Author note (Rasmussen requires this, APA does not) with information about the class name, class instructor and date.

Rasmussen has a template you can use in APA Guide in the APA Quick Start Tool Kit.
