University Referencing/Citation Style Guide:
The University has published a style guide to help students correctly reference and cite information they use in assignments (American Psychological Association (APA) citation style,
http://www.ballarat.edu.au/aasp/student/learning_support/generalguide/print/ch06s04.shtml or Australian citation style
Reports are to be presented in hard copy in size 12 Arial Font and double spaced. Your report should include a list of references used in the essay and a bibliography of the wider reading you have done to familiarize yourself on the topic.
Report Submission: Hard-copy to tutors/lecturers assignment box in week 11. Double-sided printing for the hard-copy is encouraged in order to save paper. Declaration should be done to declare how much (percentage) each of the team has contributed to the report.
A passing grade will be awarded to assignments adequately addressing all assessment criteria. Higher grades require better quality and more effort. For example, a minimum is set on the wider reading required. A student reading vastly more than this minimum will be better prepared to discuss the issues in depth and consequently their report is likely to be of a higher quality. So before submitting, please read through the assessment criteria very carefully.
