Marking criteria[edit | edit source]

Below are some general comments about this exercise.

Overall[edit | edit source]

  1. Overall, the standard was high. Many students embraced the exercise and provided interesting, indepth chapters which clearly demonstrated an understanding of relevant theory and research.

Theory[edit | edit source]

  1. The best chapters demonstrated a solid understanding of emotion and/or motivation theory in relation to the specific topic of interest.
  2. The best chapters provided critical analysis of theory, based on research and argument.
  3. The best chapters provided examples and/or case studies.

Research[edit | edit source]

  1. This was possibly the weakest area. Not all chapters demonstrated evidence of a close reading of key research in the topic area.
  2. Some chapters cited research but did not describe key studies in any depth in terms of methodology, results and implications.
  3. The best chapters included description of effect sizes and some included summary tables and/or graphs.

Written expression[edit | edit source]

  1. The quality of written expression varied widely - from highly professional, polished writing in full APA style through to weaker chapters which lacked proofreading, clarity and APA style.
  2. The best chapters combined effective content with additional learning features, such as captioned imaged, wiki-links, review/quiz questions, and links to further resources.
  3. Some images were uploaded without appropriate copyright details and so these images were deleted.
