Reading Log


Assessment Item 1: Reading Log
Reading logs help students interact with reference materials. They provide a record of what students have read and a starter to discuss what they achieved by reading it. They help students reflect on themselves as readers.
Reading log entry criteria
1. The correct citation of the reference;
2. The main thesis of the reference;
3. Any predictions or applicability to future states or about what might happen next;
4. How you felt about what you have read in terms of accuracy, applicability, reliability, validity and generalizability;
5. Issues in the reading that you agree with;
6. Issues in the reading that you disagree with
7. Why the material read is useful (or not).
The Task
1. For each module (Module 1, 2 and 3) pick two articles from the course reference resources/bibliography plus one that is not on the list (has been discovered by literature searches etc.) So for each module you will select 3 articles, 2 that are in the course and one non-course. This means you will be writing a total of 9 entries in your reading log.
2. Using the above seven (7) criteria listed in the rationale section, write at least 200 words and no more than 300 words on each of the reference materials selected
3. For the article that is non-course (that you found by literature search) you must supply a copy of the reference by:
o scanning and attaching to your reading log; or
o supplying a hyperlink to the actual article.
o Failure to do so will mean that all marks (see mark allocation below) for that part of the log will be forfeited.
4. This means you will supply a total of three (3) non-course supplied reference materials, one for each module.
5. The non-course supplied reference must be applicable to the course module being studied prior to the due date of the Reading Journal Entry.
6. Each set of three (3) readings for each of the modules are worth a total of 100 marks and when aggregated, this accounts for 40% of the total mark for this subject. See mark allocation below.
Mark allocation for Assessment Item – Reading Logs – For each group of three references per module:
1 x non-course supplied reading entry 200 words log
entry 40 marks
2 x Course supplied reading entry 200 words log entry 60 marks
100 marks
