Formatting according to academic conventions:
1. Your case study is to follow academic conventions of structure with an introduction, body and conclusion.
2. Your introduction will outline the key points of your case study.
3. The body of the case study will cover all the elements of your discussion.
4. Your conclusion will provide an overall summary of your main points with no new information or references.
· Review the marking criteria sheet. Consider that your paper’s grade will be derived from criteria outlined in that sheet and thus clear explanations of the expectations for varying grades are provided for both your direction and the assessment of your paper.
· Use a separate page for the reference list.
· The quality of your references is what is important rather than the volume of references (use references that are from contemporary and valid sources such as peer reviewed journals; do not use websites that end in “.com.au” as academic sources; journal articles should be less than seven years old).
· Word count includes in-text references, but not reference list.
· Page numbers are only required for direct quotes but preferably use no direct quotes or keep these to a bare minimum.
· Words in excess of 2,750 words will not be read and thus not contribute to your grade.
· The cover sheet should include your name, student number, the unit code, the assessment item number and word count.
· Line spacing: at least 1.5; Font size: 12; Font type: Arial.
