Writing requires skill and being able to write within a specified word limit is an essential component of professional and academic work. Reading and writing critically are fundamental skills which demonstrate an understanding and an ability to make judgements and solve problems, hence why only 10% of a word count should be direct quotes. That is, if the word count is 1500 words only 150 of those words should be direct quotes. Word counts provide students with an indication of the amount of detail and work required for each assessment item.
What is included in a word count?
Essentially, all text within an assessment item from the introduction through to the conclusion is counted in the word count. This includes all in-text citations, direct quotes and headings. The word count does not include the following:
• Title page
• Reference list
• Appendices
• Tables
• Figures and legends
Please note that if you submit your assignment, notice that the similarity index is high but do not have time to revise your assignment before the due date has passed, then you are advised to:
• contact the Lecturer in Charge and request that your assignment be removed.
• revise the assignment, submit it within three days of the due date and incur a late submission penalty.
• submit it into the regular drop box. Do not submit into the extension drop box. Please review the Academic Integrity and Misconduct policy if you choose not to do this.
This unit requires you to use the APA 7th ed. referencing system.
See the •Academic referencing* page of the Student Portal for more details.
It is your responsibility to read and familiarise yourself with ACU policies and regulations, including regulations on examinations; review and appeals; acceptable use of IT facilities; and conduct and responsibilities. These are in the ACU Handbook, available from the website.
A list of these and other important policies can be found at the University policies page of the Student Portal.
