IN TEXT REFERENCING
ALT + T, (NUMBER)







When you cite authors for the first time in your paper you should state all the authors’ names. For further citations of this work you can use ‘et al’.

Some minor problems with in text referencing and quoting.



Avoid the overuse of direct quotes. Consider paraphrasing instead. A large number of direct quotes do not provide the reader with any indication of whether you are able to interpret the evidence you have acquired.

When you use direct quotes make sure there is a lead in statement to the quote and some discussion about the quote follows.

Make sure the quotes you use are relevant to the topic being discussed and do not stand alone outside the discussion.

Single space and indent long quotes (greater than 30 words) and no need to use quotations marks.

Incorporate short quotes (less than 30 words) into your text writings.

In text referencing for secondary sources

STRUCTURE
ALT + S, (NUMBER)

A highly organised and structured paper that highlights your thinking and addresses the assessment requirements

A high level of clarity or expression






The approach you have taken is relevant to the assessment requirements. The sequencing of information and the development of your ideas are easy to follow.

Well organised paper with , clear expression of ideas

Your paper lacks structure and thus it is difficult to follow the development of your ideas.

The paper could be better organised by sequencing some of the material more appropriately.

You need to spend time planning your paper so that the flow and sequencing of information shows the development your ideas.

Remember it is important in your writings to frequently to link your thoughts back to the original question/topic/idea.

The paper is not well organised. Significantly under/over the page requirement.

I have included comments in the paper for your consideration




EVIDENCE ALT + L, (NUMBER)

Extensive sources of information/evidence used Excellent integration of sources into sentences

Primary sources of information plus other evidence






Consistently well supported with sources/evidence. Quotes well integrated into sentences




Adequate sources/evidence. Some evidence does not support the discussion

If you use information that the author has acknowledged is the work of another author both authors are acknowledged in the in text because what you are using is the second authors’ interpretation of the first authors’ work. Because you would not have read the original work – only the interpretation – the bibliographical details of the secondary source are included in the reference list. (see the Harvard referencing guide)

Inadequate evidence of sources/referencing in the text. Quotes are not integrated into sentences but ‘dropped in’

The referencing in a sentence (at the beginning or the sentence or at the end of the sentence) acknowledges the information in that sentence not the whole paragraph. Therefore, the information in the sentences that precede of follow, that is from the same source/author should be written in a style that informs the reader that the information is from the same source

In text referencing from an edited text

because an academic essay is the construction of an argument/position and the research/literature is the evidence to support the position taken it is therefore better to make the connections explicit because it is not possible to assume that the reader will come to the same conclusions.

SCHOLARLY WRITING
ALT + W, (NUMBER)










Correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence and paragraph construction.

Some minor problems with sentence and paragraph construction.

Avoid one sentence paragraphs as they disrupt the flow of your paper. If a point is worth raising it should be given more discussion.

Avoid long sentences as the meaning you are trying to convey is often lost.

Poor spelling and grammar. This distracts from the information you are trying to convey.
