Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for sentence casing. For example, the wikitext should be:

== Cats and mice ==

rather than

== Cats and Mice ==

Suggestion for quizzes[edit source]

Hey ! i found these helpful flashcards that might be useful for your quizzes. I attempted them straight after reading your page and felt your page was very informative, well done ! https://quizlet.com/39009189/social-psych-chapter-5-flash-cards/ U3177123 (discusscontribs) 21:18, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for this. I'm not too sure how they link into my page though- perhaps you've linked into the wrong page? All the best, Anubhandary (discusscontribs)

Hi, I'm not sure if this is meant for my page either... These quizzes don't seem to relate to my content. Thanks anyway! TaraMaland

Title and sub-title[edit source]

  1. OK
  2. Sub-title and title have been corrected to be consistent with the book table of contents
  3. Capitalisation of the title andsub-title have been corrected to be consistent with the book table of contents

User page[edit source]

  1. Created - minimal, but sufficient
  2. Consider linking to your eportfolio page and/or any other professional online profile such as LinkedIn. This is not required, but it can be useful to interlink your professional networks.

Social contribution[edit source]

  1. None summarised with link(s) to evidence.

Section headings[edit source]

  1. Basic, 2-level heading structure.
  2. See earlier comment about Heading casing.

Key points[edit source]

  1. Good
  2. Overview - Consider adding:
    1. a description of the problem and what will be covered
    2. an image
    3. an example or case study
  3. Basic development of key points for each section, with relevant citations.
  4. Include in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles and/or to other relevant book chapters.
  5. Direct quotes need page numbers (APA style) - even better, write in your own words.
  6. Conclusion (the most important section):
    1. hasn't been developed
    2. what might the take-home, practical messages be?

Image[edit source]

  1. An image (figure) is presented.
  2. Caption
    1. does not use APA style.
    2. could better explain how the image connects to key points being made in the main text.
  3. Cite each figure at least once in the main text.

References[edit source]

  1. Very good
  2. For APA referencing style, check and correct:
    1. capitalisation

Resources[edit source]

  1. Remove overcapitalisation - use sentence casing
  2. See also
  3. Use bullet-points
    1. Also link to relevant Wikipedia pages
  4. External links
    1. Excellent

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this chapter does a good job of applying psychological theory and research to a real-world problem.
  2. For additional feedback, see the following comments and these copyedits.

Theory[edit source]

  1. UGT is well explained, with breadth of coverage, historical review, and useful explanatory tables.
  2. The online survey provide an interactive touch.
  3. One or more case studies could be useful.

Research[edit source]

  1. Relevant research is well reviewed and discussed in relation to theory, with useful examples.
  2. Quite a bit of the research is cited is already quite dated/historical. Particularly for this topic, it would be ideal to focus on UGT studies in the last 5 or so years.

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression
    1. Overall, the quality of written expression is very good.
    2. Use 3rd person perspective rather than 1st (e.g., "we") or 2nd person (e.g., "you")[1].
    3. Avoid one sentence paragraphs. A paragraph should typically consist of three to five sentences.
  2. The Overview and Conclusion are reasonably useful. An individual example or case study in the Overview could help to catch reader interest and illustrate UGT in action.
  3. Layout
    1. Consider revising the heading structure - it appears that the bulk of the content is within "history" rather than exploration of UGT itself.
  4. Learning features
    1. Use bullet-points and numbered lists, per Tutorial 1 - this would help to tidy up the chapter/make it look neater.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Minimal use of image(s).
    5. Very good use of table(s).
    6. Very good use of feature box(es).
    7. No use of quiz(zes).
  5. Grammar
    1. Use serial commas[2] - it is part of APA style and generally recommended by grammaticists. Here's a 1 min. explanatory video.
    2. Check and correct use of ownership apostrophes (e.g., individuals vs. individual's vs individuals').
    3. Check and correct use of affect vs. effect.
  6. APA style
    1. In general, do not capitalise the names of disorders, therapies, theories, etc..
    2. Figures and tables
      1. Cite each Table and Figure using APA style.
    3. Citations are not in full APA style. For example:
      1. Remove author initials
      2. Use ampersand (&) inside brackets and "and" outside brackets.
      3. If there are three or more authors, cite the first author followed by et al., then year. For example, either:
        1. in-text, Smith et al. (2020), or
        2. in parentheses (Smith et al., 2020)
    4. References are not in full APA style. For example:
      1. Check and correct use of capitalisation.
