GENERAL NOTES FOR ASSESSMENT TASKS
Content for Assessment Task papers should incorporate a formal introduc1on, main points and conclusion. Appropriate academic wri1ng and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must develop and demonstrate in work being presented for assessment. The content of high quality work presented by a student must be fully referenced within-text cita1ons and a Reference List at the end. Kent strongly recommends you refer to the Academic Learning Support Workshop materials available on the Kent Learning Management System (Moodle). For details please click the link hVp://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/mod/folder/view.php?id=3606 and download the file 1tled “Harvard Referencing Workbook”. This Moodle Site is the loca1on for Workbooks and informa1on that are presented to Kent Students in the ALS Workshops conducted at the beginning of each Trimester.
Kent recommends a minimum of FIVE (5) references in work being presented for assessment. Unless otherwise specifically instructed by your Lecturer or as detailed in the Unit Outline for the specific Assessment Task, any paper with less than five (5) references may be deemed not mee1ng a sa1sfactory standard and possibly be failed.
Content in Assessment tasks that includes sources that are not properly referenced according to the “Harvard Referencing Workbook” will be penalised.
Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count if this is specifically stated for the Assessment Task in the Unit Outline. As a general rule there is an allowable discre1onary variance to the word count in that it is generally accepted that a student may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
GENERAL NOTES FOR REFERENCING
References are assessed for their quality. Students should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. The textbook for the Unit of study can be used as a reference, but not the Lecturer Notes. The Assessor will want to see evidence that a student is capable of conduc1ng their own research. Also, in order to help Assessors determine a student’s understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number(s) if shown in the original. Before preparing your Assessment Task or own contribu1on, please review this ‘YouTube’ video (Avoiding Plagiarism through Referencing) by clicking on the following link: link: hVp://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/mod/folder/ view.php?id=3606
A search for peer-reviewed journal ar1cles may also assist students. These type of journal ar1cles can be located in the online journal databases and can be accessed from the Kent Library homepage. Wikipedia, online dic1onaries and online encyclopaedias are acceptable as a star1ng point to gain knowledge about a topic, but should not be over-used – these should cons1tute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources. Addi1onal informa1on and literature can be used where these are produced by legi1mate sources, such as government departments, research ins1tutes such as the Na1onal Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), or interna1onal organisa1ons such as the World Health Organisa1on (WHO). Legi1mate organisa1ons and government departments produce peer reviewed reports and ar1cles and are therefore very useful and mostly very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use non-peer reviewed websites (Why can’t I just Google?): hVps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N39mnu1Pkgw (thank you to La Trobe University for access to this video).
