Written as an essential guide for first-year university students, A Guide to University Assessment provides explanation and strategies for the successful completion of popular forms of assessment. This book takes the unique approach of catering for reading learners through definition and clarification of key aspects in essay writing (telling them how to write an essay), before focusing on visual learners with a sample essay that is deconstructed with the use of detailed figures (showing them how to write the essay). This is followed with a guide for public speaking, and a section outlining how to approach group work.
This easy-to-follow method not only increases student understanding of the different aspects of university assessment, but demonstrates the purpose and function of these aspects in a working sample. From the earliest stages of generating ideas, through brainstorming, to the final development of argument, this resource will promote essay writing, public speaking and group work skills and assist in consistently achieving higher marks.
