How do I present my information?

The presentation of your assignment is very important as most assignments include marks for presentation.

This may include marks for

  • writing style
  • clarity. Is your work easy to understand?
  • logical order of  your material to present your argument clearly
  • correct spelling, punctuation and grammar
  • appropriate and correct referencing, including format of your reference list, and proper acknowledgment throughout the work
  • layout and formatting
  • correct word count, or correct timing
  • physical aspects (e.g. voice, appearance, mannerisms) for an oral presentation.

Carefully check all instructions given to you by your lecturer.

These instructions may be in your course handbook, your online module or on the individual  assignment. If you are unsure about what is required, contact your lecturer for clarification.
