Written communication skills

Written communication skills, refers to your ability to clearly communicate to the reader/marker the sense of what you are trying to say. The correct grammar gives the reader clues. For example, when you begin a new paragraph this is a clue to the reader that you have finished elaborating on one point and you are about to start another. The structure of your paper is also important in that if points logically follow each other the reader can better follow your line of argument. An introduction and conclusion are also important communication avenues. A good conclusion sums up your points and restates your main argument in one paragraph. It does not introduce any new material. An effective introduction foreshadows your themes and arguments in one paragraph. It is a good idea to rewrite your introduction when you have finished developing the main body of your essay.

(5 marks)

Presentation and referencing

Presentation is important in this day and age because when you are in the workplace and asked to provide a report it‘s the presentation that others first notice. All academic work needs to be properly referenced as you need to acknowledge from where you sourced your information. This is a Level 3 unit and there is no excuse for students who do not reference their work correctly.
