APA recommends two spaces after punctuation for "draft manuscripts", which includes assignments to make it easier for editors or instructors reading many manuscripts/assignments. For manuscripts that will actually be published in a journal, APA does not determine spacing. Each journal determines how many spaces to use, but most use only one space

However, in your references list, use only space after punctuation.
