Evidence Informed Practice (EIP) and consumer of research role

Completion of this assessment task will enable you to meet Learning Outcomes 1, 3 and 4. Assignment 1 is made up of three online skills exercises, submitted after completion of Weeks 1, 2 and 3. In these initial weeks of semester, learning is focused on Evidence Informed Practice (EIP) and your role as a consumer of research. These skills exercises focus on a hypothetical case study of a young person, Adam, involved in the youth justice system. The skills developed here will form the foundation of the work you do in subsequent assignments.

Each skills exercise comprises a small number of open response questions. Each builds on the activities completed in the weekly tutorial, but requires students to submit an individually crafted response.

The aim of these skills exercises is twofold (1) To scaffold your learning: skills developed here will form the foundation of the work you do in subsequent assignments; (2) for you to engage early in critical thinking and writing. As these are early assessments, which are both formative and summative, what is expected is more in the form of planning notes. While it is expected that work submitted will be proofread and in full sentences, use of dot points, where appropriate, is acceptable. Presentation issues, including grammar, punctuation and spelling are not assessed as part of the overall grade. You will, however, be given feedback on these, and these will be included in the assessment of all subsequent assignments.
