Other formats may notbe readable by markers. Please be aware that any assessments submitted in other formats will beconsidered LATE and will lose marks until it is presented in Word.For assistance please speak to our Academic Learning Skills Coordinators, in Sydney([email protected]) or in Melbourne ([email protected]). They can help you withunderstanding the task, draft checking, structure, referencing and other assignment-related matters.GENERAL NOTES FOR ASSESSMENT TASKSContent for Assessment Task papers should incorporate a formal introduction, main points andconclusion.Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must developand demonstrate in work being presented for assessment. The content of high quality work presentedby a student must be fully referenced within-text citations and a Reference List at the end. Kentstrongly recommends you refer to the Academic Learning Support Workshop materials available onthe Kent Learning Management System (Moodle). For details please click the linkhttp://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/mod/folder/view.php?id=3606 and download the file titled“Harvard Referencing Workbook”. This Moodle Site is the location for Workbooks and informationthat are presented to Kent Students in the ALS Workshops conducted at the beginning of eachTrimester.Kent recommends a minimum of FIVE (5) references in work being presented for assessment. Unlessotherwise specifically instructed by your Lecturer or as detailed in the Unit Outline for the specificAssessment Task, any paper with less than five (5) references may be deemed not meeting asatisfactory 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 theAssessment Task in the Unit Outline. As a general rule there is an allowable discretionary variance tothe word count in that it is generally accepted that a student may go over or under by 10% than thestated length.GENERAL NOTES FOR REFERENCINGReferences are assessed for their quality. Students should draw on quality academic sources, such asbooks, chapters from edited books, journals etc. The textbook for the Unit of study can be used as areference, but not the Lecturer Notes. The Assessor will want to see evidence that a student is capableof conducting their own research. Also, in order to help Assessors determine a student’sunderstanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include thespecific page number(s) if shown in the original.

These type of journal articles canbe located in the online journal databases and can be accessed from the Kent Library homepage.Wikipedia, online dictionaries and online encyclopaedias are acceptable as a starting point to gainknowledge about a topic, but should not be over-used – these should constitute no more than 10% ofyour total list of references/sources. Additional information and literature can be used where theseare produced by legitimate sources, such as government departments, research institutes such as theNational Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), or international organisations such as theWorld Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimate organisations and government departments producepeer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore very useful and mostly very current. The contentof the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use non-peer reviewed websites (Why can’t Ijust Google?): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N39mnu1Pkgw(Thank you to La Trobe University for access to this video).MARKING GUIDE (RUBRIC):Your answers for the final examination questions will be assessed as per the following marking criteria.Please read carefully each section/level and marks weightage.
