Our essay marking of course work is based on many different points. These also include; originality of essay, sentence structure, punctuation, grammar and spelling. Take your time, and get it right!
While we fully support the use of the internet for research, when you find something on the internet or from a book, that perfectly fits the topic of the essay, don’t just copy and paste it! Read the article fully, then put it into your own words. This way, you won't fall foul of the grading team for plagiarism!
Google.com is an amazing tool for students, and you are sure to learn a lot along the way.
Important Notes for Students
Even with the awarding of fast-track credits, it takes a minimum of 4-6 months to complete the course for a highly experienced and knowledgeable ESL teacher (depending on how much time they can dedicate to the course).
Students should note that our grading teams can instigate an inquiry, if they feel that the modules have been completed and returned too quickly, and they may even employ their software to check modules against both the web and internal documents, in order to see if assignments and modules have been simply copied from material found on the web, books or from other students. If they feel that plagiarism was used by a student to complete the work too quickly, it can create an issue with the grading team, so please take your time, make the work your own, and get it right!
You can also provide a list of 'resources' and hyperlinks, for any material (books, web pages etc), at the bottom of each essay assignment topic, to show where you found the material relevant to the topic, and provide recognition for those authors that wrote it.
When researching your essay assignments on the web, it is important that you re-write information you have found, to make it your own work. You can even add personal teaching experiences into the course work, to match the topics, thus giving an essay, a more personal feel. You will certainly learn a lot more this way!
In the extremely rare event that a student submits a module for grading, that is below the required standard, do not worry! If an assignment within the module has failed the grade required, we will simply ask you to re-do the work, while providing advice and direction on how to correct the error(s). This is done until the assignment receives a pass grade. It is our mission that all students successfully complete the whole course with a pass grade, and our 'Student Advisers' are always on-hand to help.
This course is largely based on web research work for it's assignments, whereas our higher level degree courses (MA, PhD) provide much of the material (books, links etc) needed to complete the courses. At BA level, the university directors felt that the course should motivate the student to learn how to research material on the web, as the search for teaching information and materials is something that all ESL teachers need to be good at, in their teaching careers.
