NRSG 374 Assignment 1 Presentation Guidelines
Descriptions for Presentation Options – Choose From Option 1 OR 2
Narrated PowerPoint Presentation
|Format and Length||8 – 10-minute narration of a PowerPoint presentation (8 – 10 content slides + reference slides)|
- Instructions on how to record a slide show with narration and slide timings in PowerPoint are available here: https://support.office.com/en- us/article/record-a-slide-show-with- narration-and-slide-timings- 0b9502c6-5f6c-40ae-b1e7-e47d8741161c
- Oral presentations that consist of only reading the content of the PowerPoint slides will receive very few marks. The purpose of the PowerPoint slide is to give a dot-point overview of concepts (with APA references), with your oral recording further expanding on these points.
- Academic references must be used to support the discussion. Avoid using consumer resources. The use of consumer resources significantly impacts on the quality of support for the discussion, and significantly reduces the ability to score marks for content sections requiring literature support.
- A minimum of 15, high quality resources are to be used, and no resources over 5 years old

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.
What is not included in a word count?
The word count does not include the following:
- Title page
- Reference list
- Figures and legends
