Where the lab content or information contained in technical articles from the Internet or books helps to fully describe the lecture slide content, discussion of such theoretical articles or discussion of the lab material should be included in the content analysis. The document structure is as follows and include network diagrams and pictures where required (2500 words): 1. Title Page 2. Introduction (~100 words) 3. Background (~100 words) 4. Content analysis (reflective journals) for each week from 1 to 11 (~2200 words; ~200 words per week): a. Discussion i. Important topics covered (Description of Models in details, i.e.; OSI and TCP/IP, Cabling) ii. Definitions (NAT, Bridge, Internal etc.) b. Interpretations of the contents i. What are the most important/useful/relevant information about the content? (e.g.: Data packet transportation, hops, tracing) c. Outcome i. What have I learned from this? (e.g.: Types of Topologies, Routing Protocols, Virtual networking) 5. Conclusion (100 words) Your report must include: At least eight references, out of which, five references must be from academic resources. Harvard Australian referencing for any sources you use. Refer to the Academic Learning Skills student guide on Referencing. ASSESSMENT SUBMISSION: The assignment must be submitted online in Moodle. Where additional documents need to be attached, all materials MUST be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format. Other formats (e.g., pdf or MAC file) may not be readable by markers. Please be aware that any assessments submitted in other formats will be considered LATE and will lose marks until it is presented in MS Word. No paper based or hardcopy submission will be accepted. GENERAL NOTES FOR ASSESSMENT TASKS Content for Assessment Task papers should incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion. Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must develop and demonstrate in work being presented for assessment. The content of high quality work presented by a student must be fully referenced within-text citations and a Reference List at the end. Kent strongly recommends you refer to the Academic Learning Support Workshop materials available on the Kent Learning Management System (Moodle). For details please click the link http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/mod/folder/view.php?id=3606 and download the file titled Harvard Referencing Workbook. This Moodle Site is the location for Workbooks and information that are presented to Kent Students in the ALS Workshops conducted at the beginning of each Trimester. Kent Institute Australia Pty. Ltd. Assessment Brief ABN XXXXXXXXXXCRICOS Code: 00161E RTO Code: 90458 Version 2: 11th October, 2019 Page 3 of 3 TEQSA Provider Number: PRV12051 Kent recommends a minimum of FIVE (5) references in work being presented for assessment. Unless otherwise specifically instructed by your Lecturer or as detailed in the Unit Outline for the specific Assessment Task, any paper with lessthan five (5) references may be deemed not meeting a satisfactory standard and possibly be failed. Content in Assessment tasks that includes sources that are not properly referenced according to the Harvard Referencing Workbook will be penalised. Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count if this is specifically stated for the Assessment Task in the Unit Outline. As a general rule there is an allowable discretionary variance to the word count in that it is generally accepted that a student may go over or under by 10% than the stated length. GENERAL NOTES FOR REFERENCING References are assessed for their quality. Students should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. The textbook for the Unit of study can be used as a reference, but not the Lecturer Notes. The Assessor will want to see evidence that a student is capable of conducting their own research. Also, in order to help Assessors determine a students understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number(s) if shown in the original. Before preparing your Assessment Task or own contribution, please review this YouTube video (Avoiding Plagiarism through Referencing) by clicking on the following link: link: http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/mod/folder/view.php?id=3606 A search for peer-reviewed journal articles may also assist students. These type of journal articles can be located in the online journal databases and can be accessed from the Kent Library homepage. Wikipedia, online dictionaries and online encyclopaedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic, but should not be over-used these should constitute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources. Additional information and literature can be used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such as government departments, research institutes such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), or international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimate organisations and government departments produce peer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore very useful and mostly very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use non-peer reviewed websites (Why can't I just Google?): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N39mnu1Pkgw (thank you to La Trobe University for access to this video). MARKING GUIDE (RUBRIC): Your answers for the final examination questions will be assessed as per the following marking criteria. Please read carefully each section/level and marks weightage. Marking Criteria Marks Content precisely presented based on references 25 Marks Presentation (Layout, no grammatical errors, reads well, etc.) 10 Marks Cited references 5 Marks Total marks for content analysis as reflective summary 40 Marks
