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==

Feedback on chapter[edit source]

Lucy here is a link to an article on loss aversion Your topic is really interesting and you've already made headway but I think your page could benefit from a case study to give the reader an easy way of understanding the topic. Hopefully the link will provide inspiration for the case study. U3037801 (discusscontribs) 07:15, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Hey there, Really like the start of the start with Imagine this, I did a similar thing with mine. I also like that use of boxes for focus questions and the quote. You may plan on doing it already but I suggest extending the topics in the consequences of loss aversion and forming it into a paragraph structure. --Kunal Kumar - University of Canberra (discusscontribs) 06:46, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

References[edit source]

Hi Lucy,

I noticed a few of your references didn't have dois or they weren't linked properly. I updated the second and third references as an example and fixed a few formatting issues (e.g., italicising journal name and volume number). Also, issue numbers only need to be included if the journal is paginated by issue (usually not the case). Here's a helpful link: Good luck with your chapter, it looks like a really interesting topic! --U3122470 (discusscontribs) 03:42, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

APA figures and reference list[edit source]


Your book chapter looks great so far, great work! Below I have just provided an example of how to reference the first image you have included. I did some research, and I think this would be a good caption for it.

Figure 1. Daniel Kahneman, who won a Nobel Prize in Economics for developing prospect theory.

For figure 2, you might want to write a caption that explains whats going on in the graph.

I have edited your book chapter images and just put figure 1 and figure 2 in APA style, so all you need to do is add a caption.

Also, I don't believe you need the inverted commas for loss aversion throughout your headings, as its clear what your discussing! :)

For your reference list, to follow APA guidelines, you need to make sure the volume number and journal is in italics, and for the title of the journal articles you don't need to have it capitalised. I have edited your page and fixed this up for you. For future reference (pun intended) haha, this may be helpful:

I hope this helps, good luck with it!

Comment[edit source]

Hi there, just wanted to let you know that I put a comment in your figure 1, just suggesting to put a small description there or have it right next to a paragraph explaining the figure. Looking really good, I really like your focus questions box :) --MaddieCarleton (discusscontribs) 23:15, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a basic, but sufficient presentation.

Structure and content[edit source]

  1. Well selected and structured content, but could benefit from a more developed Overview and Conclusion.
  2. Good coverage of theory and research with examples.

Communication[edit source]

  1. The presentation makes effective use of text and image based slides with narrated audio.
  2. Narration using own voice rather than voice synthesis would probably have been better / more effective because you can insert your own emphasis based on understanding.
  3. The font size is sufficiently large to make it easy to read in the time provided.
  4. The visual communication is effectively supplemented by images.

Production quality[edit source]

  1. Use the full chapter title and sub-title on the opening slide and in the name of the video because this helps to match the book chapter and to clearly convey the purpose of the presentation.
  2. Video recording quality was excellent.
  3. Audio recording (see comments in previous section).
  4. A copyright license for the presentation is not provided.
  5. A link to the book chapter is not provided.
  6. A link from the book chapter is provided.
  7. A written description of the presentation is provided.
