Help Planning an Assignment

One of the keys to the production of a quality assignment is effective time management.

Your final product should reflect the time you have been allocated to its completion; that is, if you have been given five weeks to complete a report then the report you submit should look like you have spent five weeks on its production.

Below are links to tools which can help you plan your time.  These calculators will take the time you have available and set mini deadlines towards its completion.  They also provide, in some cases, useful guides for the construction of oral presentations, lab reports, analytical essays etc.

Give them a go and let us know how useful you found them.

Demonstrate Academic Integrity

When producing an in-text citation you are acknowledging that the words or ideas belong to another person.  It is a mark of academic writing to draw from the opinions, findings, ideas of others, cite these in your own work and then draw your own conclusions.  At Villanova we use the APA style of referencing.
