One short answer assignment of 1200 words in total (maximum), excluding any references.

Ensure you answer all questions. Referencing

Ensure you reference all sources you use in your assignment, including online sources. Direct quotes (i.e. statements not in your own words) should be included in quote marks in addition to being referenced. You should use the APA 7th referencing system, since this is the same system you will need to use for your essays.

The Library has set up an institutional account for APA’s ‘Academic Writer’, which includes tools for using this system. There are also numerous web resources on APA referencing, and popular referencing software (e.g. Endnote – free to students) can be set up to automatically insert your references in the correct style.

Extensions and Penalties

There will be a deduction of 10% of the total awarded mark for each 24-hour period or part thereof that the submission is late (for example, 25 hours late in submission: 20% penalty).

This penalty does not apply for cases in which an application for Special Consideration is made and approved. Note that there are limits on how long after the due date students can apply for special consideration, so please submit any applications as soon as possible. BESS can assist with inquiries about the special consideration process.

Marking

The value of marks per question is provided on the assignment sheet. Marks will be awarded for each question according to how accurately, completely and clearly you answer each question.
