Academic misconduct including plagiarism
Written coursework will be submitted on VLE, through an on-line plagiarism-detection
service called Turnitin. Turnitin matches the text of what you submit with the information
held in its databases (including journal articles and previous submissions by other students),
and the web. You will have the opportunity to use Turnitin to improve your work. To do this,
submit your work well in advance of the deadline, and Turnitin will give you a report of any
matches it has found with other sources. You can use this information to re-write those
sections in your own words. Leave yourself plenty of time to do this before the final deadline.
Be aware that Turnitin is not part of LJMU but a separate company that provides this service
to many universities, and if it is busy you may have a short delay before receiving the
originality report.
Turnitin will also give you a percentage similarity score. Tutors are often asked ‘what
Turnitin percentage is OK’? This is an impossible question to answer, because the percentage
depends on too many factors. Depending on how the assignment is set up and how you have
structured your file, a high percentage could be ‘OK’, because it is only picking up on
legitimate similarities with other sources, such as the marksheet, the reference list, or direct
quotations. Conversely, a very low percentage might be ‘not OK’ because it is picking up on
a small section that has been cut and pasted from the Abstract of a journal article. This is
plagiarism, and it is unacceptable even when it only makes up a small percentage of the total.
So, tutors will never just look at the raw percentage when they are marking your work, they
will look at WHAT is similar in the full originality report.
By submitting your work you acknowledge that you have read and agree with the
above statements.

General Guidance
Your assignment should be word processed (handwritten assignments are not accepted), using
Times new roman size 12 font, double spaced, with numbered pages and your student number
printed as a footer on every page.
The word limits stated for this assignment excludes the reference list at the end of the assignment
but includes all text in the main body of the assignment (including direct quotations, in-text
citations, tables). Tables and figures should not be included within your text but separately as an
Appendix.
Please be aware that exceeding the word count limit will affect the academic judgement of the
piece of work and may result in the award of a lower mark.
Appendices are not considered a supplement, and thus, will not be assessed as part of the content
of the assignment. As such, they will not contribute to the grade awarded; however it may be
appropriate to use an Appendices section for any material which is a useful reference for the
reader. Please note that appendices are not included in the word count.
The majority of references should come from primary sources (e.g., journal articles, conference
papers, reports, etc.) although you can also utilise area specific textbooks. You must ensure that
you use the APA style of referencing.
Please indicate the word count length at the end of your assignment.
NO STUDENT WILL BE ALLOWED TO COLLECT ANY PRIMARY DATA
Marking and assessment
The final summative assessment requires the creation of a Portfolio. The assignment submission
will be graded out of 100%. Please note that the essay assessment will contribute to the 40% of
your overall module grade.

Assessment Guidelines
Write an essay on a contemporary theory or model on changing behaviour.
You should define the behaviour your essay focuses on, e.g. reducing crime,
improving health at work, increasing healthy eating, reducing screen time etc and then
consider the extent to which the theory or model relates to this.
This assessment is an essay assignment which means that we are looking for you to
develop an argument and support it with reference to appropriate academic literature.
Therefore, it is essential that your points must be supported with credible sources,
derived from primary sources (i.e.: peer reviewed journal articles).
