Comments[edit source]

Really nice so far! I think you have given some really interesting info on theoretical knowledge and how it relates to your topic. The only thing I found a little confusing was all the use of different coloured text boxes everywhere which I couldn't see much of a pattern to (although they are pretty!). Overall super interesting stuff and really well written so far :)Tigeralee (discusscontribs) 08:19, 15 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Hi! Really cool job. It's such a popular topic on the news right now that needs to be evaluated more. I like the statistics box you provided and how all the important info is in capitals in the box next to it, it really grabs your attention and lets the reader know just how serious the issue is. That's about the nicest layout for a quiz I've seen so far too :) Only suggestions I have are that there may be a bit too much of a distraction with a few of the titles being in that light blue box, especially that one titled 'What motivates one woman to leave a violent relationship and another to stay?' There just seems to be a lot going on there with all the images around it and maybe decrease the size of the purple ribbon image, so that it fits into the box. Other than that, the external links are all relevant and great for women who may need some assistance but don't know who to contact. Well done! --Bt1718 (discusscontribs) 5:50, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Excellent job on your book chapter! I enjoyed reading it. I found an old book chapter that I think you could find useful Hope this helps!

Hey, this looks to be a really interesting topic. Your chapter is looking really good, i like how you have separated the theories into boxes making it easier to tell them all apart.

Statistics[edit source]

Hey! Really great job on how your chapter is structured - I think it flows really well from history to theories and models. The only criticism I have, there are a lot of statistics at the introduction. I understand you are trying to make the reader understand the importance of the issue, however this may be better if you picked a handful of really important statistics, rather than lots in different boxes. Just something to consider anyway! Best of luck with your chapter U3096454! (discusscontribs) 10:55, 24 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Looks great! If I were you I would make figure 3,4 & 5 bigger so you can read content. Your quiz looks magic. I would maybe space the boxes out a bit if you can or put two next to each other rather than three so it's no so crammed but totally your choice. Good luck :) U3040525 (discusscontribs) 06:02, 25 October 2015 (UTC)3040525[reply]

Hey! This topic is such a powerful topic that reaches so many people that often chose to stay quiet about their personal problems. I think it is a wonderful topic to help women understand what an abusive relationship looks like. I personally have experienced an abusive relationship and when I went to talk to a psychologist he brought it to my attention that I was in a physically abusive relationship but he never hit me. The definition of a physically abusive relationship is any act of aggression that scares you/ makes you feel unsafe. This can include: things being thrown, restraining someone from leaving, etc., I think it would be helpful to discuss in your paper the different types of abuse and what they look like so people know what to look for (red flags). Hope this helps! I am excited to see the final draft. Cheers.

Heading casing[edit source]

FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a strong chapter. It could be improved adopting a simpler layout and describing some key research studies in more detail. For more feedback see these copyedits and the comments below.

Theory[edit source]

  1. Psychological theory is well covered.
  2. There could perhaps be less emphasis on other external factors (although this context is important and integral) and more emphasis on the psychological motivators/barriers.
  3. The Overview helps to establish why the topic is important.
  4. Addition of case studies or additional examples was helpful. Perhaps an example which more clearly illustrates each of the TM stages and the role of learned helplness / overcoming learned helplessness could be useful.

Research[edit source]

  1. Several useful studies are described, but there was scope for perhaps more indepth and critical consideration of the available research.
  2. When discussing 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
    1. The quality of written expression was generally very good, although there were several minor proofreading errors.
    2. The Conclusion did an excellent job of summarising the key points.
    3. Avoid directional referencing (e.g., above, below, as previously mentioned) - replace with direct wiki links to page sections.
  2. Layout
    1. See earlier comments about heading casing.
    2. Use default heading styles; remove underline
    3. Add bullet-points for See also and External links
    4. Reduce excessive use of coloured boxes, borders etc. aid accessibility; strive for simple layout (e.g., as per Wikipedia articles)
    5. Tables and/or Figures were used effectively.
      1. Figures 4 and 5 could be larger.
  3. Learning features
    1. The chapter makes excellent use of interwiki links to relevant Wikipedia articles. There could be more links to other relevant book chapters added.
    2. Quiz questions were used effectively to encourage reader engagement.
  4. Grammar
    1. Use sentence case rather than all capitals
  5. APA style
    1. The reference list is not in full APA style.

Production quality[edit source]

  1. Give the presentation a more descriptive/meaningful title than "leaving a DV relationship" which won't mean much to the average punter.
  2. Image attributions?
