Submission To Turnitin via the LMS site for HLT1RAE. The document you submit to Turnitin should be a complete submission. NO HARD COPIES of this piece will be accepted and no hard copies will be returned — this mechanism will be fully electronic.
Please note: NO COVER SHEET IS TO BE SUBMITTED TO TURNITIN. DO NOT SUBMIT THE RUBRIC TO TURNITIN WITH YOUR SUBMISSION (this increases the similarity index unnecessarily).
For further clarification of the grading criteria and final mark allocation, refer to the grading and feedback criteria on LMS under -Assessments-.
Throughout this subject (and your Core First year subjects more generally), you must use the APA 6th referencing system. The library reference tool may assist you, and can be located here: http://www.lib.latrobe.edu.au/referencing-tool/. Given the nature of this assessment it is not anticipated that you will use additional references beyond your chosen article. You are being marked on your ability to summarise information from your chosen article. You do not need to repeatedly reference your chosen article as your marker will be aware that the information has come from this source. Take careful note of the information below related to academic integrity, however, as this also applies to plagiarism.
This assessment should be a piece of individual and original work. Naturally, you will discuss this task with other students and your Workshop Facilitator whilst you are in the process of developing an understanding of how you will undertake the activity, but each student is expected to submit an individual essay. Refer to the University webpage on academic integrity: http://www.latrobe.edu.au/students/learninq/academic-inteqrity
The University uses text matching software, Turnitin, to analyse similarity between published material and student assignments. The software also matches to other student assignments. All students are required to submit their individual essay to Turnitin, by the due date, to enable analysis; this piece will not be graded until the Turnitin report is available to Facilitators. Advice on the procedure for Turnitin submission will be provided on the HLT1RAE LMS site. You will have an opportunity to submit drafts to Turnitin to check the similarity index for issues with paraphrasing and citation, and make amendments if required, before finalizing the due date. Workshop Facilitators will provide guidance on this process.
Your work must be submitted to Turnitin via the LMS site for HLT1RAE and under your own access code (otherwise it will be attributed to the person who logged onto the LMS site). You can submit several drafts prior to the due date and time. The report on your first submission will be available
almost immediately, but reports on subsequent submissions can take 24 — 48 hours to process. You will be able to check for inappropriate 'matches' and then correct these and re-submit your work. The Turnitin report will also enable your Workshop Facilitator to assess the level of originality of your work and provide feedback as appropriate.
