The topic development has been reviewed according to the marking criteria. Written feedback is provided below, plus there is a general feedback page. Please also check the chapter's page history to check for editing changes made whilst reviewing the chapter plan. Responses to this feedback can be made by starting a new section below and/or contacting the reviewer. Topic development marks are available via UCLearn. Note that marks are based on what was available before the due date, whereas the comments may also be based on all material available at time of providing this feedback.
Use default heading formatting (e.g., avoid additional bold, italics etc.).
Remove colons (:)
Check grammar (e.g., missing question marks)
Motivational theories section doesn't seem to be directly connected to the topic? However, some examples/case studies would really help for this topic e.g., how well does Maslow's hierarchy of needs (theory) hold up under the scrutiny of science (research)?
Under-developed, 1-level heading structure - develop further, perhaps using a 2-level structure for the largest section(s).
Basic, 1-level heading structure - could benefit from further development, perhaps using a 2-level structure.
Aim for 3 to 6 top-level headings between the Overview and Conclus, with up to a similar number of sub-headings for large sections.
Promising 2-level heading structure - could benefit from further development by expanding the structure.
Well developed 2-level heading structure, with meaningful headings that directly relate to the core topic.
It is unclear from the plan how the case study will relate to motivational science
Perhaps consider sport examples where a scientific approach to motivational science has been used successfully
Expression focus questions as questions
Consider adding an image.
Avoid providing too much background information. Briefly summarise generic concepts (e.g., scientific method, basic motivational theories) and provide internal wiki links to further information. Then focus most of the content on directly answering the core question(s) posed by the chapter sub-title.
Basic development of key points for each section, with relevant citations.
Include in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles and/or to other relevant book chapters.
Overall, this chapter provides a basic overview of relevant research.
When describing important research findings, consider including a bit more detail about the methodology and indicating the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
Greater emphasis on major reviews and/or meta-analyses would be helpful.
See also - move external links to the external links section (per Tutorial 1).
External links - move wiki links to the see also section (per Tutorial 1).
Good use of embedded in-text interwiki links to Wikipedia articles. Adding more interwiki links for the first mention of key words and technical concepts would make the text more interactive. See example.
No use of embedded in-text links to related book chapters. Embedding in-text links to related book chapters helps to integrate this chapter into the broader book project. This would have been the killer feature for this chapter, for it serve as a gateway to the specific chapters about the many concepts mentioned.
Basic use of image(s). Increase image sizes to make them easier to read.
Very good use of table(s).
Minimal use of feature box(es).
No use of quiz(zes).
Check and correct use of ownership apostrophes (e.g., individuals vs. individual's vs individuals')..
Comments about the book chapter also largely apply to this section.
An appropriate amount of content is presented - not too much or too little.
The content about motivational science is appropriate. The content about specific theories isn't really needed unless being used as examples to illustrate how the theories have been developed through motivational science. Could instead link to other presentations about these specific theories in the description.
The presentation is well structured.
Narrate the Title slide, to help the viewer understanding the focus and goal of the presentation.
Consider adding and narrating an Overview slide (e.g., with focus questions), to help orientate the viewer about what will be covered.
The presentation makes basic use of theory.
The presentation makes little or no use of research.
The presentation makes some use of one or more examples or case studies.
A Conclusion slide is presented with a take-home message(s).
