Comments[edit source]

I noticed that in your overview that your first sentence is written out twice in the content, unsure if this was to be a different sentence or just a cut/paste issue ^_^ --OzJoey (discusscontribs) 11:17, 19 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quiz questions[edit source]

Hey I have noticed your quiz hasn't been started so I thought I could give you a couple ideas to use for quiz questions if you're interested?

  1. what are the differences between the id, ego and superego?
  2. Who were the main figures to contribute to the development of the 'unconscious'?
  3. what is the role of defence mechanisms?
  4. what is the reaction formation defence mechanism?
  5. what is the definition of object relations theory?

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

APA style captions for images and tables[edit source]

I recommend using APA style captions i.e., Figure 1, Figure 2 etc. for all images, graphs etc. and Table 1, Table 2 etc. for all tables. The caption text should not be in italics. For more detail and examples, see -- Jtneill - Talk - c 10:37, 23 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a comprehensive examination and explanation of unconscious motivation theory with some integration of relevant research. For further feedback, see my copyedits and comments below.

Theory[edit source]

  1. Theory is particularly well covered.

Research[edit source]

  1. Some research is provided, although this could be in more depth.
  2. Good to see a critical view of research.
  3. When describing important research findings, indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression was reasonably, but there this is an area for improvement, particularly with regard to grammar and proofreading.
  2. Add a conclusion section
  3. Learning features
    1. Adding interwiki links within the main text would make the text more interactive.
  4. Spelling, grammar and proofreading
    1. Check use of ownership apostrophes e.g., individuals personality -> individual's personality
    2. The grammar for some sentences could be improved - see the [grammar?] tags
    3. Check [spelling?] tags for some places where spelling can be improved
  5. APA style
    1. Check APA style for citing six or more authors
    2. Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numbers (e.g., 10)
    3. Reference list APA is very good.

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a good presentation - well done.

Structure and content[edit source]

  1. The presentation is sufficient as a basic recorded presentation of the main ideas and research behind the psychodynamic perspective on motivation. The presentation provides good coverage of the psychodynamic theories of motivation and related research, however, the content itself is somewhat dry (academic) and it is unclear as to what ‘specific problem’ is being addressed. Perhaps including the subtitle/s, “What motivates our behaviour? To what extent are we aware of and able to identify the true motivations of our behaviour? If our motivational processes are not consciously intended how are they accomplished?”, provided in the book chapter would help to orientate the reader to the ‘specific problem’ or issue you are trying to address. A useful overview was given at the beginning of the presentation to orientate the viewer to the direction the presentation would take. An interactive case study and final overview slide were also provided.

Communication[edit source]

  1. Communication is ok (clear but not particularly engaging) and generally well-paced. Communication using image and illustrative examples is very basic. The presentation could be improved significantly by using more colour, images, illustrative examples and interactive slides – this would make the presentation more engaging.

Production quality[edit source]

  1. Production quality, tools (Brainshark) and slides used were basic. Sound and picture quality was good, however, at times there was a vibration/echo perhaps from speaking into the microphone too closely. A reference list is provided. A creative commons license is mentioned. There is a link to and from the book chapter.
