If you are unsure look at the Readings and Activities in Module 3 (Especially the parts that refer to Reflection)
Have you written clearly so that the marker can understand what you have written about? If the marker cannot understand you they will be unable to give you a very good mark. It does not matter how much you know, how good you are or how smart you are. If you don’t show us that on paper we can’t give you the marks you deserve!
Students sometimes write as though they think the marker has ESP. We don’t! If you don’t write your thoughts down we can’t mark your thoughts. The only way we can find out what you are thinking about is through your written work!
Your written work is the medium between what you are thinking and what we believe you are thinking
Make sure the written work is not like a mobile phone that has a weak signal
Did you reference your work clearly?
Did you include a Bibliography?
Did you check your work against the Marking Criteria?
We use the Marking Criteria to mark your work. That’s why it’s called ‘Marking Criteria’. It is the criteria that we use to judge your work.
If you have followed our suggestions (on the Studydesk) about when to do Parts 1, 2 and 3 you should be able to put your work aside for a few days. You will then be in a better position to proofread it
You need to leave some time between writing and proofreading.
It is nearly impossible to proofread just after writing. Your mind jumps over all the mistakes
