As part of the formal assessment for the programme you are required to submit a
Developing Academic Skills assignment. Please refer to your Student Handbook for
full details of the programme assessment scheme and general information on
preparing and submitting assignments.
Learning Outcomes:
After completing the module, you should be able to:
1 Identify and explain the key resources available to facilitate own learning and study
and reflect on the development of personal academic skills
2 Apply time management techniques to study planning
3 Identify, summarise and evaluate credible information from a range of different
academic sources
4 Explain and demonstrate how to avoid plagiarism through correct referencing
Your assignment should include: a title page containing your student number, the
module name, the submission deadline and a word count; the appendices if relevant;
and a reference list in Arden University (AU) Harvard format. You should address all
the elements of the assignment task listed below. Please note that tutors will use the
assessment criteria set out below in assessing your work.
Maximum word count: 3000 words
Please note that exceeding the word count by over 10% will result in a reduction in grade
by the same percentage that the word count is exceeded.
You must not include your name in your submission because Arden University
operates anonymous marking, which means that markers should not be aware of
the identity of the student. However, please do not forget to include your STU

There are 4 Tasks. All tasks need to be submitted in a single (One) Microsoft Word
document. There are further instructions on how to submit at the end of this
assignment paper.
Task One:
Create a timetable of study, covering the duration of the module. You should apply time
management techniques and record what time you will spend on studying for the module
and assessment writing. You should also include other commitments, such as work, family
and leisure time. Your timetable needs to be realistic (nobody works 24/7). Try to be
specific (how exactly will you spend your time – what will you do within the given time
frame, i.e. research a journal, a book, write task 2, 3, 4 etc). You could also use different
colours to show different activities.
Following this, produce a written explanation of the time management techniques
chosen and how you will use these to complete the module and assessment.
