Other formats (e.g., pdf or MAC file) may not be readable by markers. Please be awarethat any assessments submitted in other formats will be considered LATE and will lose marks until it is presentedin MS Word. No paper based or hardcopy submission will be accepted.For assistance please speak to our Academic Learning Skills Coordinators, in Sydney ([email protected]) or inMelbourne ([email protected]).

Ltd.Assessment Brief ABN 49 003 577 302 CRICOS Code: 00161E RTO Code: 90458Version 2: 11th October, 2019 Page 3 of 3 TEQSA Provider Number: PRV12051Content for Assessment Task papers should incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion.Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must develop anddemonstrate in work being presented for assessment. The content of high quality work presented by a studentmust be fully referenced within-text citations and a Reference List at the end. Kent strongly recommends yourefer to the Academic Learning Support Workshop materials available on the Kent Learning Management System(Moodle). For details please click the link download the file titled “Harvard Referencing Workbook”. This Moodle Site is the location for Workbooksand information that 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. Unless otherwisespecifically instructed by your Lecturer or as detailed in the Unit Outline for the specific Assessment Task, anypaper with less than five (5) references may be deemed not meeting a satisfactory standard and possibly be failed.Content in Assessment tasks that includes sources that are not properly referenced according to the “HarvardReferencing Workbook” will be penalised.Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count if this is specifically stated for the Assessment Taskin the Unit Outline. As a general rule there is an allowable discretionary variance to the word count in that it isgenerally accepted that a student may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.GENERAL NOTES FOR REFERENCINGReferences 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 notthe Lecturer Notes. The Assessor will want to see evidence that a student is capable of conducting their ownresearch. Also, in order to help Assessors determine a student’s understanding of the work they cite, all in-textreferences (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number(s) if shown in the original. Beforepreparing your Assessment Task or own contribution, please review this ‘YouTube’ video (Avoiding Plagiarismthrough Referencing) by clicking on the following link: link: search for peer-reviewed journal articles may also assist students. These type of journal articles can be locatedin the online journal databases and can be accessed from the Kent Library homepage. Wikipedia, onlinedictionaries and online encyclopaedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic, butshould not be over-used – these should constitute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources.Additional information and literature can be used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such asgovernment departments, research institutes such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC),or international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimate organisations andgovernment departments produce peer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore very useful and mostlyvery 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?): you to La Trobe University for access to this video).
