Papers are graded in terms of content, research, insight, originality, analytical skill, organisation, clarity of expression, overall presentation style, spelling,
grammar and proper referencing.
Referencing: references should be cited in both within the text body indicating the author, year and page number e.g. (Smith, 1987, 42) and in a full
reference bibliography section at the end of the paper. If you are unsure of referencing procedures, there are a number of sources you can consult,
including: The University of Chicago Press. The Chicago Manual of Style); The Modern Language Association of America. MLA Handbook for Writers of
Research Papers. Additionally, weblinks need to include the URL and the date accessed. All sources must be academic. Note, Wikipedia and random websites
are not academic sources. I recommend using books and journal articles.
The key information provided in a reference is (Author Last name, Year: Page number). The division between each piece of information can vary slightly
depending upon the format used (e.g. whether a “,” or “:” between the year and page number, etc). But the information provided, regardless of the citation
style, is always the same.
Plagiarism: students should be aware of the penalties for plagiarism and other form of academic misconduct. Please read the Langara Calendar for the
College’s policies on cheating and plagiarism. Evidence of plagiarism from other students’ work or published materials will result in a grade of zero and
disciplinary action will be taken. Rough work: Students should keep all their rough work (notes, drafts, handwritten comments, etc. in a folder or on a flash
drive) pertaining to the term paper. Should a
question regarding the authenticity of the term paper or sections of it arise, students will be required to produce their rough work within 24 hours of the
request to see it.
Should students fail to produce this rough work upon request (excuses of any kind,
including ‘I don’t do rough drafts’ or ‘I threw everything out’ will not be accepted), they will receive a grade of zero for their term paper and further
disciplinary action may be taken.
