Heading casing[edit]

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==

Overall[edit]

  1. Overall, this is an excellent chapter that successfully weaves psychological theory and research to help address a practical, real-world problem.
  2. For additional feedback, see these copyedits.

Theory[edit]

  1. Theories were well described and explained, with lots of examples.
  2. The Conclusion could offer some more specific take-home messages.

Research[edit]

  1. Good coverage of a wide range of relevant research in many different applied areas.
  2. When describing important research findings, indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
  3. Some statements were unreferenced - see the [factual?] tags

Written expression[edit]

  1. Written expression
    1. The chapter is over the maximum word count.
    2. Some paragraphs are overly long. Each paragraph should communicate one key idea in three to five sentences.
  2. Layout
    1. See earlier comments about heading casing
    2. Sub-headings have been added.
    3. The chapter is well structured.
    4. Sections which include sub-sections should also include an introductory paragraph (which doesn't need a separate heading) before branching into the sub-headings.
  3. Learning features
    1. Adding interwiki links would make the text more interactive.
    2. Basic use of images.
    3. No use of tables.
    4. Basic use of quizzes.
  4. Spelling, grammar, and proofreading
    1. Use Australian spelling - e.g., hypothesize -> hypothesise
  5. APA style
    1. Citations
      1. A full-stop is needed after et al.
    2. References are not in full APA style e.g.,
      1. Check and correct alphabetical order
      2. Check and correct full journal names
      3. Check and correct italicisation
      4. See new doi format
      5. Do not include issue numbers for journals which are continuously numbered within volumes.
