The primary purpose of this assessment is to enhance students’ research, analysis and referencing skills.
The secondary purpose is to give students the opportunity to demonstrate their critical thinking and written communication skills.
The third purpose is to demonstrate that you have commenced appropriate research for Assessment 3.
Before starting this assessment, please read the assessment rubric at the end of this document. You should always check the unit website for specific instructions, which may be updated continuously.
You are required to compile a ‘Reviewing the Literature’ of 5 peer-reviewed journal articles.
Step 1. Select one of the options for Essay 3.
Read the Assessment 3 Essay options and identify which one you will work on for assessment 2 and 3.
Step 2. Undertake research of the recent academic literature since 2010.
Identify five (5) academic peer reviewed journal articles relevant to the Assessment 3 Essay topic. These must be aligned to the unit themes from Weeks 1 to 5 (e.g. evolution of SHRM, the context of HRM, industrial relations, HR planning and work design challenges in a global environment). It is recommended that you undertake your research via the online ‘search’ of CQUniversity Library. You cannot use the article from your Assessment 1 presentation for Assessment 2.
Step 3. Write 500 words on each article (500 x 5= 2500 words)
For each journal article, write to the headings in the template. These include:
information, see the library guide for writing an annotated bibliography.
APA referencing. For more information, see : https://www.cqu.edu.au/?a=14033
All assessments must be submitted through the Moodle site. No email submissions will be accepted. All assessments submitted electronically through Moodle must be through the Student Portal http://my.cqu.edu.au • Failure to submit electronically will be taken as a failure to submit and therefore a zero (0) score will apply to the specific assessment. No assessment coversheet is needed to be attached while submitting through Moodle
Copy detection software (TurnitIn) is used in this course and work found in contravention of the copying and plagiarism rules will be investigated. Penalties apply in the case of proven instances of copying, plagiarism and academic dishonesty. Please check the following links to know more about TurnitIn:http://turnitin.com/en_us/training/student-training/viewing-originality-reports http://turnitin.com/en_us/training/student-training/about-originalitycheck
TurnitIn is only a tool and judgement needs to be used when you view your Originality Report. TurnitIn does not make a judgement as to what is referenced properly, it highlights the non-original material in a piece of work. You should use the similarity score as a guide only and must then check the originality report to determine whether or not changes need to be made to the assessment.
Students must familiarise themselves with the following policies and procedures at http://policy.cqu.edu.au:
