GENERAL NOTES FOR ASSESSMENT TASKS
Content 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
and demonstrate in work being presented for assessment. The content of high quality work presented
by a student must be fully referenced within-text citations 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
http://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 information
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 meeting a
satisfactory 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 discretionary 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 conducting 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
contribution, please review this ‘YouTube’ video (Avoiding Plagiarism through Referencing) by
clicking on the following link: link:
http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/mod/folder/view.php?id=3606
A search for peer-reviewed journal articles may also assist students. These type of journal articles can
be 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 gain
knowledge about a topic, but should 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 as government 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 and government departments produce
peer reviewed reports and articles 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?): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N39mnu1Pkgw
